*sigh* some people will sue over anything. Does Apples advertisement anywhere say "Will not ghost?" if not, then the user has not reason to complain. Pretty sure apple would replace faulty screens if the guy wanted.

This guy deserves a kick in the teeth for being such a whiny bitch.

Unless the screen breaches any of the advertised specifications or quality issues arise then much like Windows 8 it wont even reach the start button.

So you would be happy going into an Apple store and seeing the model on display which looks crisp and nice, you get it home, switch it on and the screen starts ghosting?

The screens that have "ghosting" look crisp at nice at first, too. My first 2 retina MacBook pros looked great.. until I tested for the ghosting issue by setting a dark gray background and going to google.com and waiting for 5 minutes.

my first 2 displays were LG.. the second one developed the issue after about 5 months. Instead of swapping out notebook a second time, I took it to an authorized repair shop and showed them the issue. They agreed that it shouldn't do that and they ordered a replacement display for me and installed it. The new display is a Samsung model and does not exhibit these problems.

A friend of mine recently purchased a retina macbook pro after the spec bump and she also got a samsung screen... makes me wonder if Apple dropped LG as a display supplier for these machines due to the issue. I don't blame these people for being angry. A $100 lcd you got from office depot isn't likely to have that problem.. there's no excuse for the display (and main selling point) of a $2200 to $2800 computer to have a problem like this.

Didn't say I would be happy, but I wouldn't go all sue crazy. I would take it back and demand a replacement.

Another useless lawsuit that will be thrown out. Other OEMS do not show what display maker is in their products either. Some are lemons/defective. As long as Apple was responsive and fixed his system, then its not an issue.

Poor Apple can't seem to do anything right these days.

Shame on LG for providing such low quality panels. I don't think it's Apple's fault, unless they knew about the ghosting and still decided to go ahead with them.

Steve Jobs would have made a lot of fuss over this (he cared about customer satisfaction). Tim Cook seems to stay pretty quiet (perhaps he's hypnotized by a reality distortion field left behind from Jobs).

This is the exact reason I don't buy anything LG anymore.
