    Quick update of faulty or perfect display stats:

     

    LG week unknown (5x)

    LG week 23

    LG week 30

    LG week 32

     

    LG week unknown

    LG week 29

    LG week 33

    Samsung week unknown

    Samsung week 33

     

    Find out your build week: http://www.appleserialnumberinfo.com/Desktop/index.php Put the serial in the top left corner bar

     

    Find out your display manufacturer: Open Terminal, copy & paste:

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    and then press Enter. If the result starts with LP it's an LG, if it starts with LSN it's a Samsung.

    There we go

     

    Week 29 (July). I was wondering why that other site said week 46 when this one actually came with just OS X Lion 10.7...

     

    Still it's an LG because the command line script returned LP + numbers. All is fine here though

    Hello,

     

    I went to that website (http://www.appleserialnumberinfo.com) and it says that my rMBP was built on "Week 2 (January) or week 29 (July)".

     

    What does that mean? Does it mean that the basic unit was built in January, but just with the parts common to all units, and the completely finished rMBP (i.e. with processor and RAM upgrades) was built in July?

     

    In any case, the website got my processor details and my SSD capacity wrong. They got the RAM right though.

     

    I hope this helps.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Peter

    First rMBP:

    Week 24 - Assumed LG with IR and a "bright spot" on the screen (sent back before we had a way to detect screen mfgr)

     

    Second rMBP:

    Week 26 - LG with IR

  • NNEU Level 1 Level 1 (55 points)

    I just received my rMBP from Amazon. It was built in week 30 and has got an LG screen. Until now i haven't noticed any strong IR (i could barely see it after a 20 minutes IR Test). My screen is perfectly white, if not even a little bluish, not yellow as reported by some other users.

     

    If the IR gets any worse i will get a replacement but if it doesn't, this unit is perfectly fine.

    I have a week 33 LG with IR. I don't believe the hypothesis that post-week 33 units are necessarily fixed yet. I have a second replacement still in Processing ****. It is scheduled to arrive next week. I'll report back.

    Never again will I buy a first-gen Apple product.  I went into the local Apple Store, and they said they'd order a display immediately but need to keep my machine for 'testing'.  I'm a Software Developer, I need this thing for work.  Every day.

     

    Calling Apple Care was no better, I got a sympathetic rep (Derek), but a manager who insisted there was nothing to be done outside of bringing it back to the store or mailing it in.

     

    Apple has seriously damaged their reputation in my eyes.  Assuming the rest of the laptop market will follow with high-res IPS displays (hopefully not made by LG), I won't be buying a Mac again.

     

    Week 29 w/ LG Display.
