Is the black MacBook's screen supposed to ripple this much?

Message Bookmarked

It's me, the black MacBook guy, again. So this new MacBook of mine's screen ripples kind of a lot. Like even if I set it on my lap, or when I type (a lot when I type), there are a lot of ripples on the screen. Like it's a freakin puddle. My boyfriend has the same computer and no ripples on his screen.

Any input on this?

I don't think it's meant to ripple that much.

it looks like you dropped a pebble into a pond and it ripples right around it

when i like

move the computer. i mean i don't want it to sound like the whole thing looks crazy - the comp looks beautiful but it definitely is noticable.

is the screen wet? have you checked the screen for moisture?

no it's definitely not wet. i've barely used the thing. i mean, i've heard that there is a slight ripple when like the screen is moved. but i'm not even moving the screen. i'm just moving the computer, or typing. there shouldn't be a ripple at all, i feel

My monitor ripples like MAD HELL OCEANS whenever I brush near it with my electric toothbrush. But I have forced other people to witness this while I am brushing my teeth, but they don't see it. It is stationery for them while from my POV it is wobbling like mad. This makes me suspicious of my electric toothbrush.

do you have any metal implants? large ones only (cavities and such are fine)

Oh I sure do, from the Idaho State University dental school. :( Just one big one tho on the left bottom side of my mouth, which is now getting smooshed by my wisdom teeth.

after more experimentation i've conluded that this computer is definitely not meant to ripple this much. i'm on hold for customer service right now. so annoying - i'm like the worst person for this to happen to. i'm picky enough as it is.
