to anyone who still bothers with this laptop: Latest intel drivers make
the screen flickering worse. You've been warned

This is a confirmed hardware issue. It's been a problem since 2013. The only way I got it fixed was work with support to escalate the case where they ended up sending me a new machine with apparently new hardware.  I've had no issues once a brand new machine was delivered. 

 

Software updates don't fix anything with this issue.

So your new replacement has new hardware in it. That's a relief. So did you have to send your laptop in before you got the new machine?
I'm senior in college and i got so much to do with the laptop. I was wandering whether i could keep the old one till they send the new one. Can you also please tell me the manufactured date or your laptop?
thanks

I can only assume it has new hardware inside since it's a) not a software issue and b) the issue is no longer present. 

 

Old manufacture date was 12/14/2014.  The new one is 4/8/2015

yes, return it. get a surface pro 3 or a macbook pro retina. I sold my yoga
2 pro on craigslist and then bought a surface pro 3. I love the surface,
use it for mainly web development and media. I also use a macbook pro for
web dev at work. Love them both.

I think I will return it, I tried out a Surface Pro 3 I hated the typing and keyboard experience and I use a laptop on my lap a lot and the surface doesn't feel comfortable for me (personal opinion), I mostly need a laptop that runs windows and is reliable. do you have any other suggestions?
