    No problem mate! my pleasure! I think the 14 days return policy starts from the day you sign that you have received your laptop!

    Does anyone have experience with Amazon returning a rMBP with an LG display?

    I just got a 2.6ghz, 16gig RAM, 512, 15" rMPB with a week 45 build.  Strange thing is that 1 battery cycle on it when I first turned it on.  Is apple selling used laptops?

     

    Ran the test for the screen and its an LG.  Going to send it back today, definitely do not want to deal with IR on a $3000 laptop.

    I got mine (which was an Apple Care replacement) and checked it with coconut battery - it said 0 cycles. Do you check it some other way?

    Tadziak, I checked it by going to "about my mac" and then going under preferences or something.  I don't have it with me as I am currently at work and I'm not 100% familiar with MAC but on my girlfriends 2008 mac it says something like 180 cycles which makes sense.  On mine it said 1.

    Yes. My first rMBP I got 6 weeks ago which was a week 33 LG displayed minor IR and the main graphics card wasn't redrawing properly. I had no problem here in the UK with Amazon taking it back. They give you a 1 month guarantee that they will take their electrical goods back. Yodel is the company here in the UK that pick up on their behalf.

     

    They replaced the machine with a week 41 LG, no problems thus far but I've only had it 12 days...

    Almost two months with my RMBP no image retention, no problems at all, I still believe that this is by far the best laptop out there, mac os is rock solid with really cool stuff, and running windows is amazing too, if you have doubts about getting this laptop, don´t, you won´t regret it, it really worths the money, yes it is expensive, but you get the best.

     

    Construction quality - Excellent

    Features - Excellent

    Specifications - Excellent

    Screen - The Best

    Software - Excellent

    Battery Life - Great

    Power - Superb

    Speed - Excellent

    Boot Times - Great

    Portability - Great

    Graphics - Great

     

    I Think this laptop can only be compared with itself, there is no pc with the same features, same specifications and the same portability that this one has...

    16 GB

    750 GB

    LG Screen (Amazing colors, great contrast, no death pixels, no image retention after 2 months)

    I haven't been following the last 100 pages or so of this post, but are they still shipping a similiar percentage of Samsung panels as they were earlier on, or has the stock mostly/entirely turned to LG?

    so if I get a replacement, does my 14 days restart once I get the new machine?

     

    Seems like they've run out of Samsungs and are only sending LGs?  Anyone build week 45+ get a Samsung?

    Yes, your exchange / return period resets each time you get a new machine. Your receipt indicates a return date which is the last day you can exchange / return.

    Okay I'll do a couple of returns then until I get a Samsung, but I would hate to get stuck with an LG screen with IR that I paid $3000 for.

    Here I go again, sounding like a parrot...

     

    Just had mine replaced today. This is my 3rd one now.  In store the general staff even mentioned about using Ripley to check the details, but unfortunately the Ripley webpage didn't seem to be loading properly.

     

    Just got home, switched it on, and the first thing I noticed was the contrasting yellow and pink tints on the screen.  Yellow at the bottom, and Pink at the top. 

     

    Another LG

    is yellow/pink better than IR?

    djs88 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm not sure. But IR will come in a few weeks (probably just past the 14 day window).

     

    My previous models had the yellow/pink hue, but nowhere near as bad as this one. It's the first thing you notice.

     

    It's a pink vignette around the edge of the screen, and yellow at the bottom.

    I'll calibrate my screen and see how it looks after.
