Since Apple released its revolutionary Retina display MacBook Pro, there have been several reported cases of ghosting. Ghosting occurs when the display is left with the same image for some time, reportedly, about 20 minutes. When the screen is disturbed (closing a window or opening a new one for example) the screen is left with a ghostly image of the previous display.
In a typical ghosting case featuring this Macbook, minimizing this window would leave a faint imprint of zebras on the screen…
Apple have begun to replace MacBook Pros that are having this problem, because the number of cases is very limited, it seems reasonable to assume the issue is down to a faulty batch of displays or back panels, rather than a system wide flaw in the MacBook’s design.
One customer reported:
“I’m having a very similar issue and it seems to always be around one area of the screen. It’s a bit above the dock and to the right of center… Could be coincidence, but it seems like that is the hottest part of the computer, so it makes me think that the ventilation onto the screen or closing it while its hot could be causing the issue,”
Another blog reported:
“Close the window and the desktop is left with a latent image; a ghost image of whatever text or graphic was in the window left on screen,”
