    Well lets prepare a warm welcoming thread for all the 13 inch pro users that are about to put fire all over here!

    After all 13" pro is their best selling machine and the 15" pro retina is the BEST notebook they have ever built!

     

    I may not be in the advertising business but isnt that more like a "lie" than "good marketing"?

     

    Their BEST notebook? There is a thread with thousands and thousands of views, countless replies, growing and gettin more and more attention day by day on a non fixed issue with their highly priced product and this is what the came up with?

    Did you watch Apple event? The best laptop ever. Number 1 US notebook. Did they lie about this? They didn't spill out the problem of their rMBP line up.

    First glance is new ballgame, is the pricing of the 13" lineup vs 15" lineup more likely to make the perspective buyers opt for the 15" more for value (larger screen, quad CPU or the 13" more for size and dual core?    I'm sure quite a large number of rMBP's were sold that the users didn't notice various panel related issues that are associated with this support forum topic.

     

    I also was right about no discrete GPU, and using dual core on the 13" against the small capacity battery.

    During today's keynote, Apple (Phil) boldly reaffirmed the following on the 15' rMBP:

     

    -Engagget:      The new display is gorgeous.  Absolutely gorgeous.

    -Verge:           Best Display ever for a laptop

    -Wired:           Apple has undoubtedly created the best notebook display on the market.

     

    Phil "and they are all correct".

     

    WOW WOW WOW!

    Retina display is just easier on the eyes with that additional 4:1 pixels compared to a cMBR.   When viewing videos, looking at product photos, reading text, it shows.   It's unfortunate that a percentage of owners encountered the various panel related maladies, but who know in what quanities the rMBP's were sold since their release.  I thought I read someplace that it would have been on the order of 250,000 units, but that might be a conservative estimate.

    Google "Please Recall Retina Macbook Pros with LG Displays" (all in quotes like that). Probably about the 3rd result from the top you'll find a link (or links) to a page on a social website (the one that rhymes with "mace hook").

     

    Sorry I have to be so vague, but the thought police are everywhere!

    That's the only way those websites can continue to receive invitations to Apple events.

    You can't respect any of these "Tech News" sites if they 1, review any advertisers and 2, have been totally out of touch with what's going on with the rmbp and haven't reported on it.

    "That's the only way those websites can continue to receive invitations to Apple events."

     

    That's one possibility. But what is more probable? What you've stated or that Apple makes sure that these reviewers receive absolutley perfect rMBPs for their reviews?

     

    Likely answer: Apple probably would not send a defective product to a reviewer.

     

    Waiting and hoping that the release of the 13 retina macbook means that these problems have been resolved or ameliorated.

    Actually I now have to jump in here.

    a) Websites do not test the machines for longer periods of times and the ghosting seems to appear after weeks or months

    b) Many websites do not test very thoroughly

     

    Anyways, I know how you feel of getting a 2000 dollar lemon, I once was in the same situation, first gen macbook air, never worked properly due to factory heat issues. Apple never fixed the issue until the second generation came out. No refund nada. Also a problem which did not show up instantly (due to a so called fix for kernel related shutdowns due to heat problems made things worse after two months, before it was not that bad)

    Apples fix for the issue except the second gen was to officially announce that the machine was not intended for heavy use, which in case of the first gen mba simply was watching a flash video.

    My personal conclusion simply was never ever jump onto a first gen apple device or a device anymore unless i have checked this forum for major problems. Sorry for all you guys who have been burned by the first gen apple device syndrome. I was in the same situation and have learned my lesson.

    How many pages before apple reacts to this issue publicly? Are we holding our laptops in the wrong way?

    Ofcourse not. You're just LOOKING AT IT wrong.

     

    Jokes aside, Apple needs to stop being so **** arrogant, and adress this issue. Now.
