    i've got a week 44 machine, and it's showing some slightly uneven screen backlighting, but the problems stop there. everything else is perfect.

    My week 44 c2d mbp runs great. It's very quiet and runs cool. CoreDuoTemp reads mid-high 40C at idle, 60C while doing processor intensive things. I haven't experienced any of the whine or other issues of the Rev. A.

    System Profiler (it's part of your serial number)


    And mine works fine. It hasn't given me any fits that a reboot didn't fix, and it runs great.

    Same here. Week 44, absolutely perfect save slightly uneven backlighting (or perhaps it's just bad viewing angle. Dark spots disappear if you sit directly in front of them)

    week 43 here, no problems. except the "uneven" back lighting at certain angles...i say its probably somewhat even, but from the viewers perspective, it isn't, cause you're looking at different parts of the screen at from different angles. Move your head directly over the "dim" spot and it seemingly gets brighter.

    W86450DPW0L - just unpacked it.

    Everything is great as far as I can tell. Quiet, beautiful, cool, beautiful, fast, beautiful...

    Thanks, I wonder if the ones from the later week come with a better LCD.

    I have a week 45 and I'm about to call about color banding.. it's pretty bad, actually.

    Other than that no problems whatsoever. A little bleeding along the bottom, but not terrible whatsoever.

    Anyone else having the horizontal lines?

    I'm not sure how you test for it.. I was actually trying to find a test that would, because I'm still trying to decipher whether or not I actually have this problem, or if it's just a whole bunch of the images I have as wallpapers. On some images, no lines show up at all.. but as I understand it, color banding could be dependant on the color of the wallpaper? I really do not understand what exactly the problem is, other than the obvious lines that show up.

    I'm somewhat leaning towards it's just a big batch of bad images, though, because the standard apple desktops don't show it, so I think I may have jumped the gun? I really don't know. Seems odd that a lot of images I got from several different places all have this.
