    Well I don't have lightroom or a calibrated xrite color/greyscale target.  Soooo....

     

    I should also add that I've brought my previous retina MacBook Pro with this symptom to the Apple Store and the genius saw exactly what I was talking about then compared mine to the models on the floor and says, "Wow, that's wayyyy off" then you feel relieved it's not just you.  Again it doesn't have to be perfect...just close

    What 3 of us on here are trying to tell you is that if your posted pics are anything close to what you actually saw in front of you then you are inncorrect, the Macbook pro has a cool tint (very blue) and the rMBP is almost nuetral.  As I said earlier, try only viewing the rMBP (default profile or set at 65K) for 2-3 days and then compare them side by side again.  I bet you'll be shocked at how blue the 17" looks.

    I thought you said you've had 3 LG display with the same issue?  That is why I was thinking your eyes had just become accustom to the cool whitepoint of the 17".  I have not seen many (if any) complaints of a 'yellowish' tint on the LG displays.  If you've had 3 in a row that really surprises me...

    Well of course if I do that the 17" MBP is going to look bluer after a few days.  It's like someone (maybe you) said earlier about the tinted sunglasses.

    That wasn't me but in part that's true.  I'm not trying to argue with you here just trying to point out that you might be so used to the blue tint that you think the rMBP is defective when it may not be (again based on 3 in a row...).

     

    There really isn't any issue with adjusting the white point to your liking unless you plan on printing color pictures, an incorrect white point can really throw of printed colors.

    Yep, I have had 3 with LG, 1 with Samsung.  I've also had 2 high-res anti-glare.  All the same 'yellowish' cast.  I work in IT.  I deal with Macs of all different stripes each and every day. I see tons of them.  From iMacs to Cinema Displays to MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and MacBook Airs.  There was an issue similar to this with the iMacs awhile back and this is reminiscent of that.

    I appreciate all of your help and opinions.  It's good to have smart people to bounce this stuff off of.

    Interesting, I'm wondering if this may be an issue that is showing up from Apples new (mid 2012) decision to standardize to the sRGB 2.2 65K color target for all there displays going forward?  For what it's worth most people who view there display after the first accurate calibration to 2.2 D65 sRGB think it looks to warm....

    Is there a presser about this change?  Where can I read an official statement from Apple?  I'm not doubting you.  I just read everything Apple and I have not seen it!

    I got it from a post on the Datacolor.com website (thye make the Spyder calibrtaion systems).  Apple consulted with CD Tobie (one of the directors) on calibration for their screens.  I believe it was CD's review of the iPad 3 where there was a link about Apples choice to use a color standard. It made perfect sense for Apple to target a standard calibration target so that all their new devices will look the same as the next, iPhone, iPad, IPod, MacBook etc.

    That would be awesome if Apple could pull that off!  My iPad retina has white whites in contrast to the retina MacBook Pro using that same color standard.  Since Apple has released an iMac that supposedly is factory calibrated with a spectro-radiometer maybe the upcoming revisions of other Apple products will have a similar treatment.

    I guess you do have a color tint on your rMBP.  My iPad 3 is almost an exact match to my rMBP when viewing this page side by side.  I'm going to try and measure the white point of the iPad to see what it's at.

    Random question: Does anyone have a hardshell case for their rMBP?

    yep i brought a incipio case in Green looks awesome and fits quite well too

    I'm still waiting for a refund from Incipio for my returned 'feather case'.  If you have the feather case try opening your screen to the max angle, if it's like mine you'll only be able to open it about 10 degrees past vertical, without the case the screen opens a full 45 degrees past verticle!  The screen cover bottoms out on the bottom case cover so you can't open the screen all the way....
