After 20 minutes of a static screen, I received a very slight screen burn. It was difficult to see on the blue background, but I could still make it out after careful examination. Should I exchange it for a new one, or does it seem fine to you guys?

I have experienced the same issue, today.
After i came home form work I looked at the screen of my new MacBook Pro Retina and saw the burn effect a bit above the dock. I'm using a dark grey background.
For me it looks like Retina is not ready in the MacBook Pro.
I called Apple, and they told me that it would take several weeks to exchange it in Europe, because of the high demand.

It could just be a bad batch becuase a lot of people bought it and they are using it. I know they might not know that at the moment but still few of them have this problem. I hope mine doesn't have this (it's still one its own way) but if it does i will get another one.

Nothing with burn-in display seems fine. If you are still in 14-day return policy well just get another one or if you passed over 14 days make an appointment with Genius Bar and let them check it for you and exchange it with a new one.

Well we can always count on the people who bought it at the first or second week as a blogger, reviewers, etc. I hope they worked extensively with the device and not just review the features and make movies.
I'm crossing my fingers to be a bad batch.

Mine is still on the way but I could test this with the one in the store. It wasn't 20 minutes but I could keep everything on the screen without moving for almost 16 minutes and I couldn't find any burn in.
I hope it was a bad batch. Nothing to worry about you can replace it and get a new one really easy the only problem is shipping date which if they don't have your customized MBPR (like 16G RAM ro 2.7GHz CPU) in stock you have to wait all over again.

I guess waiting all over again is better than not able to get it replaced. I am still waiting for mine... which I ordered last week, like many other users had said, hope this is just a one off batch.

Note that it's not really "burn-in" as would happen on a CRT or plasma, it's image persistence that WILL go away over time.
If it bothers you, and Apple will replace it, go ahead and get your unit swapped out, but it's likely the issue would go away on its own.
I've personally had this happen on LCD monitors and it does go away after a few days at most and displays seem most susceptible when new.

It sounds like the headphone… required burnning time to explore beautiful sound.
I do hope that it is this kind of situation, but how I can tell? Is there any way to speed up the progress? Thanks.

I haven't seen this burn in problem yet, but has anyone seen the problem where the display doesn't repaint properly? I am having to reboot my machine at least once a day because the windows are not repainting themselves properly. Very frustrating. Could this screen refresh problem be related to the burn in issue? It seems like the munged screen repainting is more of a software issue.
So if I take my mac back to the store, and exchange it within the fourteen days, can I exchange the new one in fourteen days, and keep doing that over and over until I get a machine that works properly?
Also I have everything installed that I want installed. I have a Time Machine backup. Can I use that Time Machine backup (via "migration"?) to setup the new mac just like the old one? Or are there things I will have to worry about reinstalling?

I don't think your problem with redrawing related to the image retention or persistence.
Yes in 14-day return policy you can return your machine without question. I'm not sure though you can do it every 2 weeks. Btw you have to wait at least 3 weeks if the sore doesn't have anything in stock.
Yours is OK. Back to store and let the genius look at it. It seems to me it's a software issue.

GarnetR - I believe you're experiencing the same problem as me! I shot a quick video and youtubed it, you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ODtHj1RDjE&feature=youtu.be
This still seems like image retention to me, as the scattered ghosting results in trails and I need to completely restart the machine to get rid of the issue. It's happened about 12-15 times since unboxing the laptop on Friday the 15th.
