Making a poll...

You can see what your LCD manufacturer is by doing the following:

Launch the Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/)
Copy and paste the following command onto a single line and hit return:

ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

Read the output, you are looking for an “LP” prefix to numbers reported back:
LP133WP1-TJA3
Color LCD

If the prefix is not “LP” then you have a Samsung display

You can check which SSD module you have by going to About this Mac > More info… > System Report… (the new name for System Profiler) and clicking on Hardware > Serial-ATA in the left pane. If the enter for APPLE SSD is followed by SM, you have the Samsung, if it’s followed by TS you have the Toshiba module.

Thank you.

I wanted to try a more specific poll, but I am not even sure if the results would even be useful.

Yeah, I'm not sure, either. I guess some may find it interesting, but I've never understood the benefit to knowing what other people buy, beyond curiosity. Since everyone's needs and preferences differ, I just buy what works for me and ignore what everyone else buys. Like I said, it may be of some interest to some. I just didn't know if you were aware of the other existing poll.

Returned my 11 yesterday and had a chance to mess around with a 13 that will arrive today. Really looking forward to the larger screen that is so much bigger.

13/8/128
