    I'm thinking of exchanging my MBP for another but I fear that the replacement will be worse. If you've done an exchange, how did it turn out? Was the replacement worse? What happened?

    I think mine may have a screen issue here but I'm not quite sure and I'm afraid replacing it might result in a worse machine (or will it): http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=970004

    I've gone through three MacBook Pro exchanges before I finally got a reliable one. Although those were all for actual hardware problems, not for being OCD.

    My current uMBP15 is a replacement for one that had wireless issues - sometimes the Airport card would show to be not installed, sometimes there, sometimes not. Reset PRAM, etc. several times, was just erratic so I took it back. The replacement has been perfect.

    you don’t have any kind of display problem.
    Stop being so OCD (cant be used as a verb...oh well) and enjoy your computer.

    OP, I think you're just crazy. You shouldn't even use an Apple product at all.

    :)

    on another note, is it possible to get a 2010 mbp by saying there's something wrong with my MBP? Mine is 2009. Its been 8 months so far.

    Not really, better doesn't mean fine. Going from a HD and GPU issue to just a GPU is better. Getting a replacement that is perfect but let's not hi-Jack a thread with a meanless Internet fight.

    I used to do exchanges all the time. Now it's pretty much a "Why do I give a F and waste my time on the small crap" attitude.

    Same feeling here, I only do exchanges if there is a real hardware problem. I've learned to care less about the minor things.

    Geez, what a ****ed up comment.

    1) The guy may be neurotic but doesn't mean he shouldn't use an Apple product at all ("smile"). How about a little respect?

    2) Then you follow up that mature comment by asking how to swindle Apple?

    Anyway, to the OP, I don't see a significant problem in your screen. I've seen worse, including on this site of others' screens. Ultimately it depends if it bothers you enough to do something about it.
