I received a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display today.  The model is MD212LL/A and according to , the production year is 2012 and the production week is 48.  I ran the "Image Persistance Test," for 5 minutes.  I noticed the alternating white and black blocks were "burned" into the screen.  I timed the occurence and the burn-ins went away after 9 minutes.  Also, I used a picture of the McDonald's yellow and red arch and left it on the screen for four minutes.  After 4 minutes, I exited the window and noticed image retention of the McDonald's arch.


I tried to find the manufacturer of the display using the Terminal command listed in the other threads.  However, I believe Apple has disabled this command or has changed it to something different.  Entering the command did not result in anything.


I am assuming I have a LG panel.  This is disappointing since my 15" MacBook Pro with retina display also had the same problem before Apple replaced it with a Samsung panel.  The display on the 13" also looks more yellow.  I have already setup an exchange.  I read that LG had recently won a large contract producing displays for Apple.  Does anybody know if the 13" MacBook Pro with retina display only comes with a LG display or is there hope for a Samsung display?
