    If I view a pure white image it looks like maybe 1/4" has a slight gradient. The darkness in the right corner is a little more prominent and extends maybe 1/2" Anyone else seeing this on their 11"?

    Every 11" I've seen (about 10 of them) has shown a very slight "shadow" around the edges, easiest to see on a solid light color like the boot screen. I would assume it's normal, unless it's something more dramatic than this. At least it doesn't leak light :D

    Thanks for the replies. I think I'll visit my local Apple Store and compare the screen. I will report back what I find.

    I checked at the Apple store today and all the 11" MBAs there had the same slight darkness, so I guess it's normal. It IS very subtle and most probably wouldn't notice it.
