    people have been talking about apple halting the production process of mbp c2d's, and possibly because they're fixing the uneven backlight/bad viewing angles of the lcd.
    if this is actually the case. will those who already bought a mpb c2d...will they replace the lcd with the new one being used?..or they won't do anything.

    They won't do anything, it's not like the old ones were faulty, they just weren't great LCDs.

    The viewing angle on my matte C2D isn't great, I think it's just a laptop thing.

    Where are these reports that the screens are being discontinued?

    These very same panels have been used since the CD MBPs. Apple knows. They just don't care.

    Its not that bad..ppl are going nuts over this. I dont remember owners of CD MBPs complaining this much over the LCD. This has me looking for stuff that isnt neccesarily there. If I hadnt read all these posts I might not have seen it. :(

    Haha... yeah macrumors has made me notice things I would never have noticed in the past. The site can be very helpful but also cause high levels of paranoya as well. Try to keep everything in perspective. It is a shame Apple doesn't use a higher quality LCD in their Pro line computers :( The display on my MacBook looks much better than the display on my MBP looked (granted it is easier to make backlighting even on smaller screens).

    Where did you happen to read this? I'd be pretty interested as I'm about to recieve my MBP really soon.

    It's just how LCDs are. I haven't seen a LCD Monitor that have even brightness on the entire screen. If you find one that doesn't cost over $1500, let me know. ;)

    Why do you think graphic designers still use CRTs? Yes, I'm a graphic designers but I use an ACD at "work". :D The ACD have uneven bightness, but so does the Dells and LGs at work.

    I think people just need to complain about something since they have nothing else to complain about the C2D MPB.

    Yup exactly! People should do their research here and once they get their system(if theyre happy with it) stay away from the forums for a couple of weeks! :D :D
