may I demand product replacement - completely new Macbook Pro Retina?
My 15" Macbook Pro Retina will have screen replacement for the 3rd time. For the first time it was ghost effect - replaced with new screen, for the second time bad pixel - replaced with new screen, and now there is once more bad pixel - maybe it is the time for WHOLE COMPUTER replacment?
Do you know some of the Apple's polices in this area?
May I even demand the warranty coverage prolongation? One such replacement is about one week without computer...
Additionaly to bad pixels something like presented on the picture started happening...
UPDATE regarding ghost effect issue:
http://youtu.be/KdhIA8-UIRQ The video shows that only the LG-Panels are affected. Unfortunately it seems that the chance of getting a Samsung panel is only about 1/3.
You want to know what kind of Panel/Display your Retina Macbook has? Simply start your Mac OS X Terminal and type in the following command:
ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
Model numbers beginning with "LP" indicate an LG display. A number beginning with "LSN" corresponds to a Samsung display
