15" MacBook Pro Vertical Striping Issue

Growing threads on both MacRumors and Apple's discussion forums are reporting intermittent vertical striping with current generation 15" MacBook Pros.

MacRumors reader-submitted photos of the issue

According to affected users, the striping appears to occur when the display is changing brightness, often when waking from sleep or powering up or taking pictures with Photo Booth. To temporarily resolve the issue, users have shut and re-opened the lid or used the ctrl-shift-eject keyboard combination to reset the LCD.

This particular issue has been documented by several sites over the past several months, however Apple has yet to respond in any formal manner.

Another reason why I don't buy any displays from Apple, they make the worst in the industry.. Walmart sell better displays than Apple...

Thanks Apple for your high quality product....


Don't know if I'd go that far... a little over-priced yes, but they have great color fidelity and viewing angles. View gradients on an Apple LCD vs. something from Walmart and you will see the difference.

Yes, Walmart is a wonderful store if you're looking to decorate your trailer.

Hey Apple can care less about your screen issues. All they want to do is sell Iphones now.
