Flexgate got me (2016 MPB w/ tb)
A few days ago I opened google full screen and noticed the “stage lights” at the bottom of my screen. Wasn’t sure what they were but after one google search it became evident there was a bigger problem at hand. Then today my screen completely gave out when opening past 45 degrees. At first I thought I would ride it out and hope a replacement warranty came out soon especially since it seems there’s been a lot of reports since the start of 2019 but now I had no choice. Took it in to apple today and without him acknowledging the issue for what we all know it is, the genius was familiar with what was going on and quick to bill me $500 and ship it to the depot. Regrettably I had no other choice but now I’m left wondering …. what’s going to happen when they put the same faulty display on? Am I going to be in this exact same position in another 2 years? I really hope someone starts a class-action suit to get a repair program in place.
