    Is that what this is? or am I simply imagining an issue?

    In the picture at the bottom, it is very clear that the lower part of the display is yellowish (for what it's worth,I've seen much worse). In the one above that it looks like slight yellowing, but not too bad. I would definitely have it replaced if it bothers you. Whites should be the same top and bottom.

    Just for reference, the word is "yea," and pronounced "yay," not spelt yay, though.

    Call up Apple or stop by a store, if there is one near you. No reason they can't fix this issue for you.




    Glad to see your contribution to this discussion neglected the entire reason for the thread. Time well spent.

    Definitely replace it, even if it doesnt bother you much now, lets say you want to resell it at some point? Are you positive your buyer will be as lenient as you are?

    Seriously, in the second and especially the third picture you don't see that the bottom white strip is much yellower than the top white strip?

    Hard to tell from pictures but the bottom looks yellow.

    THIS goes a long way in explaining why Apple can continue to put defective LCDs in their laptops without too many protests: for whatever reason, many people don't see it! These pictures clearly show the problem and yet there are still people who say it looks fine. It's exceedingly obvious to me, especially in the last picture.

    It's a bit yellow . OTOH, if I were the Genious inspecting this mbp, I'd recommend you take something for your OCD.

    And if you were a genius and told me to get medication, I'd tell you something too! Come on, WHY would you accept that after paying all that money? Doesn't it bother you that Apple is counting on customers not caring because it's too much hassle, that Apple is cost-cutting but not either passing on some of the savings to you with lower prices, OR making sure that you get the best quality for your money? Instead, they charge a helluva lot AND give you mediocre quality.

    As a customer, I find it really insulting. And I'm surprised that anybody would suggest that somehow the customer is crazy or OCD for demanding better.

    Its called viewing angles. 2/3 pics look completely fine. The last is a angle issue

    You may be right - there seems to be lens distortion too and it's always hard to see with pictures unless the environment, white balance and everything is done properly and in a controlled way. However, if it is an angle issue, it's still a problem that colors would be distorted with such a small angle change. In any case, only the OP can determine if it's a problem - even if this particular case is an angle issue, the yellowing problem is still real.

    I have returned two yellow screens it is not viewing angles.
    I suppose all those people returning theirs for the same issue have no clue :rolleyes:

    Make sure its not the viewing angle. (sorry if someone already suggested this I didnt read all the posts). Notebooks all have a color shift on the screen when viewed in anything but straight on.
