    Is it only me or do other people have a little backlight leakage on the screen of the new 12" iBooks? It is in the bottom left corner. What I mean by "leakage" is that the screen is a little lighter in the corner of the screen. It is not terrible noticeable I may not worry able it unless it becomes worse.

    I've noticed the bottom (both sides) of my original G4 iBook has a bit of leakage but nothing major.

    Yeah, a tiny bit here in the bottom left. Nothing bad at all though!

    i have it too on both sides of the screen. i think it is an issue because the screen is too dim anyway. in the end it has the same low quality as the screen of my old pismo. i do not like my dell. but its screen does not have this problem. there is a second thread about that issue:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=143849

    are the screens of the 12" powerbook and the 12" ibook really the same hardware?

    unfortunately the quality of displays in subnotebooks is a major problem along all manufacturers. there was an article in ct magazine (http://www.heise.de/ct/05/17/134/ german) about it.

    Yeah I have it a tiny amount on my Rev A G4 iBook. I don't really notice it to be honest though.
