    I didn't want to post in the existing thread as this post is intended to take a different more fanboistic angle at this issue. Does anyone know of laptops which do not have a grainy display (hence defending Apple's reputation of using the most bestest highest quality parts in their computers?)

    Are all laptop screens for instance TN panels?

    Do PVA/MVA/IPS panels not exist for laptops configurations?

    Did Apple genuinely use this panel because they have no other choice?

    Grainy? It's the reflective coating. Even my Apple Cinema Display has it.

    Sure, you can see it if you face is pressed against the screen ...

    Face pressed against screen?

    Unlike you I have human lengthed arms, so I only sit with my face about 2 feet away. With moderately high brightness, colours on it look like staring into a laser pointer.

    You see the same grainy patterns as you would from a beam of laser.

    I agree with what your saying but the MBP has a bit much grain, it gave me a headache. Seriously it looks like theres sand under the display or something. My powerbook had it too but it wasnt as bad.

    I found the perfect solution for it

    Although weird, but hold down Ctrl-Opt-Apple-8

    Instant eye relief.

    Is it really good for the healthy eyes? For visually impaired, that feature helps. But, I am not sure if that would help the eye's health. If so, then, I may start using it more often.

    CTRL OPT APPLE 8 isn't that helpful. But I honestly don't think my macbook pro has a grainy problem. Maybe I'm blind or something, but I think the screen is excellent. My monitor doesn't look like a Carribbean beach.

    Well, I can agree that the Apple Cinema Display is much less grainy than my MacBook Pro screen but it is stil present.
