    The PowerBook one is bluer, the iBook one is white.

    The apple logo on my powerbook is just white, I have never seen any shade of blue emitted from it :/

    I'm pretty sure any major difference we see in the Apple logos is because of the different colour of the rest of the back of the screen (aluminium versus white) and its contrast with the white logo. :)

    It's just a window.

    The Apple logo isn't really anything more than a window to the backlight on the LCD. But... yeah; it lights up whenever the LCD is on.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but TFTs used on laptops generate their own light and shouldn't be backlit.

    Consider yourself corrected :). All TFTs must be backlit. The only notebooks to lack a backlight are the old passive LCDs, from the early 90s. The backlight is just very compact on notebooks.

    Actually, I lied. Those were backlit, too.
