1.0 out of 5 stars Ghosting/Image retention problem., September 24, 2012
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro MC976LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop with Retina Display (Personal Computers)
Don't buy until apple fix the image retention issue on the retina Macbooks. Image retention is a defect, it displays ghost like pixels that shows whatever you were looking at before. You, as a consumer, is at risk for buying a product that pose as a serious privacy threat! Don't buy it and hope that apple will fix it if you take it in the store. They won't fix it and tell you it's within spec.
