For example, if I use Safari or Chrome to visit http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/, the MacBook Air image on the right side is distorted, with a mix of pink (magenta) and cyan lines and dots. It seems that the image was not loaded properly on a Retina display.
Do you think this is a hardware failure, or a problem with my internet connection?

I would take it back to where you got it. This is most likely a graphics problem, IMHO.

Thanks Bee. I will observe the issue and will visit an Apple Service Center to check it.

Let us know how you make out, OK?

I can now observe the issue on websites that contain large graphics like Flickr. On another laptop (Windows), some websites are not loaded properly because of my internet connection. For my Mac, I think it would be best to test Safari and Chrome using a stable internet connection before asking for technical support just to rule out a possible cause of the problem. Also, some websites that I view, aside from the distorted images, contain codes (maybe HTML codes). This means that the web page is not loaded properly, right?
My connection speed is 0.48 Mbps for download speed and 0.28 Mbps for upload. Is this too slow for Retina display?
I bought my MacBook Pro during the first week of November and did not encounter any graphics issue until now. I used to browse the internet and the web images seems to be loaded properly.
I do not encounter any graphics issues when using other non-web applications like Microsoft Office, Calendar, Photoshop, et al.

The example you posted above usually correlates with graphics Hardware problems.
Software-only problems more often omit sections of the pictures, or fail to display them entirely, or display a partial page or a blank page.
The speed of your Internet link should have nothing to do with this problem. You should be able to surf over a dial-up connection (although most users would find it extremely tiresome to wait for those pictures to be downloaded and displayed).Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Thanks Grant and bseand. I will bring it to the store and have it checked out. I haven't experienced the creaking/popping noises from the machine.
