I've been searching around but haven't found a conclusive answer. Does the new MacBook have an LED screen now? Thanks

Thanks. I thought they would have added that this time

I don't foresee Apple adding a LED screen to MacBooks, it would greatly decrease the distinction between MacBook and MacBook Pros. They need a certain difference between the models. It's not great for us, but from a business model it makes perfect sense.

The LED Backlit is no doubt mercury free but however should keep in mind,
the power consumption is not much different from current LCD and in fact your screen will be hotter when you turn it on.

mercury is danger for health but really how many of computer users will poke a hole on our screen and let it mercury expose?

I thought even the MBP's are LCD screens. They are LED backlit.

Screens break and shatter all the time for a number of reasons......

Your screen is LCD, your backlighting is LED. The backlights went LED on the 15" MBPs with Santa Rosa (2.2-2.4GHz).

but we were left out of the loop on the LED screen.

Apparently, the design group didn't want the MB to be just like the MBP!

I'm taking my BlackBook back! LOL (they'll have to pry it from my dead cold hands to get it back) :cool:
