    Is it me or did Apple get rid of the display manufacturer check on the mountain lion. You know checking if its LG vs Samsung on Terminal interface. Just wondering because I bought my mom a new macbook air and I am configuring and setting up it for her right now. I guess they got tired of people complaining about LG screens

    Meh, the screen looks good. So it does not really matter.

    Was it this command?

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    There is more noise here that the command does not work on 13" rMBP but does on 15"

    I think the command can be wrong, the OS and HW has to know the make of the display.

    I just used ioreg -lw0 without Grep and found a display identifier, but, on this Mac it will not be worth anything, it's a Mac Mini, does not have a display.

    I am pretty sure that somewhere it is in ioreg but it's a long list, try it yourself and then search for "display".

    Seems fine to me even though I never heard of AUO before now
