View Full Version : Can some start a poll on this one?

Dec 16, 2008, 09:16 PM
I am about to get a MBA rev. B SSD version and have seen a lot of discussion on the grey line and the flickering of the screen. I know there is a poll on how many people have the line, but what I really like to know from the people having the rev.B is if it is really affecting their daily use of the machine. (I know it is a lot of bucks spent and everyone wants a perfect machine) but I have seen some people said the lines and the flickering did not bother them. So can someone start a poll for us so people like me - the soon-to-decide buyers can get a better idea from the current users.

Personally, I checked the flickering on my DELL D620 and it is also flickering a bit on mine, but it did not flicker on any other screen and it doesn't bother me at all. I am not sure about the grey line as I don't know exactly what people are referring to. I guess I have to go to the store and check one out from the max bright then. But most importanly is the daily use of the machine which is the point isn't it? Thanks,

First I have to say, dont you think, is poll would be even more subjective?
Even if 70 % could work with such an MBA, this doesnt mean you could.

For my side - I would love to keep it and I dont mind a minor issue - but I just cannot forget the hole of 3000 (Can) Dollar in my pocket, when I look at this kind of screen. Cut a zero and I will get a better screen in any laptop. Further, Apple is able to do it right - look at the (for me to glossy) MBs and MBPs.

Second: I just saw this add in this thread :D : http://www.upload2world.com/pic107/upload2world_82eb6.jpg
