Though the new MacBook Pros with Retina displays have seen some pretty great reviews, looks like it’s suffering some early-run problems, just as most major releases do these days. This time around we’re seeing customers complain of what’s called “ghosting” occurring on their new high resolution displays. What happens with ghosting is the monitor has issues with image retention, keeping a “ghost” of whatever’s been on the screen recently lingering in the background.
There’s a large thread growing on Apple’s official Support Communities with more and more people confirming the issue, as well as multiple pictures popping up showing just how bad the issue is (including the one above). It reportedly happens after just 20-minutes of use, which is a surprisingly little amount of time for any display with this issue.
Apple is reportedly replacing any computer that a customer reports as having this issue, so if you’re somebody who seems to be affected you should probably either call up Apple Support or visit your local Apple Store if you’re lucky enough to have one within driving distance.
