I just purchased a REFURBISHED 15" Retina MacBook Pro from the Apple online store. I have never purchased a refurbished device before, but I couldn't pass up the deal!


$1599 for 8GB Ram, 1GB graphics card and 256GB Flash storage.


After purchase I noticed that there are a LOT of users having screen issues and performance problems with theirs. (screen flickering, ghosting, lag)


Then I begin to think, is the old saying true? "If its too good to be true, it probably is."  Or the famous, "You get what you pay for."


I know Apple goes through some strict quality control procedures and I'm sure that by now that have figured out exactly what parts and hardware have been causing the problems for people. What are the chances that my MacBook will have these same issues since it was just released from the factory to the refurb store? I would think any problematic hardware should've been replaced while they had it, correct?


I'm very concerned now......
