MacBook Pro Retina users
Dear Toms Hardware

have any of WHO suffered from image retention on older macbooks? Do you still own a macbook that does this - or does it get worse with time/knob wiping?

I bought a second hand retina model for a bag and it does this weird ghosting thing after having firefox open for anything over 5 minutes. Although its gone next time I turn the fucker on.


Normal? Or would you send the fucker back

joke or serious answers accepted


I WATCH STREAMS ON THIS SO IT IS WEST HAM RELATED

The first macbook pro retina's had a dodgy screen issue. (I think LG supplied those screens).

Apple gave a free replacement years ago. Not sure they do that anymore (being that those models came out in 2012).

I think I had my screen replaced. I'm still using mine! Best machine I ever bought. (apart from my speakers are blown).

Re: MacBook Pro Retina users
it was cheap
but reading google (yes all of it) seems most MBP retina have ghosting after using safari - which then vanishes after 20 minutes


thing is - will it get worse?
will a new one do this after 1 year?

my Imac doesnt have this problem

Although, with it being a Macbook, any repair normally means it has to be taken to bits with a sledgehammer and a heat gun to melt all the glue they bung into those overpriced idiot boxes.

The screen is fucked.
Return it or get the screen replaced.

Send it back, or get someone to replace the screen.

Probably why it was sold cheap to you, although the seller should have stated the problem. Send it back as ghosting shouldn't occur, second hand or not. Mr Cook will be happy to sell you a first hand mac book pro for £3000.
