i think it'd be hard to tell from pics

i'm just wondering if this is common with the Air and if I get a replacement it would have the same thing

I don't know how bad yours is, but my 13" Air has exactly the same problem. The un-evenness is ever so small, and hard to notice, unless you look for it. For the same reason you quote, I've decided to live with it.

What does bother me more is the fact that when scrolling up or down fast, text momentarily turns Blue (as well as fuzzy). I checked a couple of units in the APPLE store, and they do exactly the same thing. My desk-top iMac does not have this 'Blue' Problem.

So my second replacement has the same issue only it's worse this time.

I had a look at the models on display and they didn't have this problem, I think I'll try one more time.

Has anyone else had to deal with this issue?
