crazy contrast.

I know this is going to sound crazy,
after a few days of using the MBA gen 2 for short periods of time it appears the contrast has started to change.

I dont know how to explain it but if you sit in a fairly dark room in a fixed position you can see (well at last on my machine) the contrast of the machine changing from darker to lighter / then a few seconds later from lighter to darker.

Now I cant say often this happens as I have only just started to notice it, and its not a huge contrast difference. in fact it ever so slight ... but its enough to drive me nuts!

has anyone else had this, or noticed this?

Contrast or brightness? It adjusts brightness for the surrounding environment by default.
