My brand new iBook just arrived (first Apple computer since an Apple IIC in like 1987). Overall, I'm extremely impressed with the build quality and setup process, as I expected to be. I do have just one minor question about the LCD screen however. First, I have no dead pixels (thank God - I hate those). However, I've noticed that certain areas along the bottom of the screen appear to be slightly darker than the rest of the screen. Particularly the bottom right corner. I'm really anal about stuff like this, so I know that it's mostly just me - even if there is a slight issue. It's slight to the point that if I look very closely at the corner, I don't see any discoloration at all. But I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed anything like this, whether it is normal, etc. I also noticed, when playing around with the screen saver, that I get sort of a sparkling effect. For example, pixels that should maybe be a dark orange flash a brighter oranger for a second. This is most noticable in the 'flurry' screen saver, when there are tons of little lit up pixels between the main 'strands.' But I also noticed it in the cosmos screen saver (much less noticable there). I haven't seen this anywhere but in the screen saver, but I don't think it happens on my fiance's G3 Pismo. Okay, the sparkling thing isn't the fault of the screen. It happens on an external monitor too, so it must be a software thing, a video card thing, or intentional. Sorry for sort-of diagnosing my computer in a public forum here! But maybe it will be of interest to someone else. Also, I'm happy to report that the 1 GHZ 12 inch g4 is actually 1.07 GHZ, as reported in the 'About this apple' thing.
