View Full Version : New MBA Screen vs. 2008 MBP Screen

Jun 25, 2013, 04:12 PM
It's me again.

I bought a new 15" MPB in 2008 and used it without a problem until 2012. I then sold it to a friend and used to proceeds to buy an IPad III. Turns out I had little used for the iPad and I just sold it to another poster here. Hope he enjoys it because it was a low mileage special.

Anyway, probably tomorrow I am going to order a 13" MBA. I'm wondering how the screen compares (not in size, obviously) with my old MBP, because the old MBP seemed plenty good enough for me. The MBA will be strictly a travel computer, because I have a 27" iMac on my office desk.

I also have some vague memory of the old MBP having a soft cover on the screen, a film, as it were, but I could be wrong about that.

So, aside from size, can any posters differentiate the screen qualities and brightness of my old MBP with the new MBA?
