I'm in the process of trying to sell my Macbook Pro (15-inch w/ touch bar, 2018). I found a buyer who gave me a decent offer. I sent the computer to them and upon inspection, said that, and I quote:
"We have found keyboard paint wear on the screen. This occurs when the screen is still rather hot, and closed. When the keyboard and the screen meets, it causes the screen to wear/burn-in in the shape of the keyboard, thus, leaving a keyboard like imprint on the screen."
As a result, they want to drop the offering price by $150, which seems steep to me.
Now it's true that I've seen keyboard imprints appear on my screen sometimes after lots of use + travel, but I've always been able to wipe them off with some solution and a cloth. I've never heard of "keyboard paint wear", nor can I find anything about it anywhere online.
So I can consider if this an actual problem that they're describing, I’d like to ask: is “keyboard paint wear on a screen” a real thing?
