Hi forum,

I have a relatively new 13" macbook pro. Recently I have been finding that the left hand side of the screen flicker blue and yellow. you can still see the image but it has a tint to it. I have not dropped it, however about six months ago i accidentally put a little dent on the top left of the apple logo on the same side. Surely they cant be related. I have apple care and have a appointment with a genius on Sunday. Do you think apple care will cover it.

Please Help me,

Thanks Forum

I guess it depends how big the dint is...? I would think they would cover it but if the dent is substantial they may try to fob you off and link the dent with the screen flickering.

I know how annoying it is, my previous laptop had this flicker and it drove me crazy.

Hope you get it sorted.
