Just cancelled my order for a Macbook Pro Retina. Apple would not give me any guarantee that this problem has been resolved with the 2015 model. They just said not to touch the screenb with greasy fingers and that if it did happen, then the fault would be mine. That is not good enough.

Hmmm, I have Mid 2012 MacBook Pro Retina (15") for 3 years without single problem. 50% of time MBPr is in closed clamshell mode and 50% in normal open mode. So far I've cleaned the screen up to 10 times with glass cleaner and always with a soft, lint-free cloth.

I had the same problema, but with less drastic effects. It's starting to be a inconvenient when I start to see a movie in dark places... My main problema is that I bought the macbook in US and now I'm in Brazil. In the US a new display is 699 US dollars!!! In my country is 1500 US dollars... That's sucks!

I’ve got a Retina MBP Mid 2014. Using it for 7 months and haven’t got any issue like the one reported. I hope not to face anything like.

I faced also this problem and give to Apple Service. They replaced the screen free of charge

Yeah, Mine is starting too.... Even if I cleaned it, It would show the same but lightly...

I clean my screen every week (sometimes every other week) with 3rd party cheap products or windex. When stuff like this happens, I find a dry cloth and buff that out. Just looks like people don't know how to clean it correctly, or aren't adding a lot of pressure. (Retina, Mid 2012)

You do realize that windex eats up that layer right?
matttttt - March 17, 2015 at 2:58pm
Yes. The point is that while that happens to me, it's just a layer on the screen. I've yet to see this look extremely bad in person

Lol you must love being a big brave Internet troll bashing things you could never afford
DLE - March 16, 2015 at 9:14pm
Yes I got this too, cleaned it always with the apple cloth and water per apple's instructions. Retina screen looks like crap after this happens and considering we paid a big premium for that screen this is not a good deal.

Apple is brand , Hardware china = shitty
tim33 - March 16, 2015 at 7:40pm
my screen is fine but you can see where the keys touch the display....
Drew1836479 - March 16, 2015 at 7:40pm
I'm sure the replacement depends on what these fools are cleaning they're screens with. If your not following the instructions in the manual that's your fault. They are probably using window cleaner which is not what your suppose to do.
BlackCook - March 16, 2015 at 7:38pm
And unlike most company I'm sure Apple will replace it for FREE.
