I'm live in Tokyo, and I just picked up a copy of MacPeople, which is one of several major magazines focusing on Macs. (Yes, there's more than MacWorld!) They have a special feature on the new 12 inch PowerBook, and they point out that the new 12 inch's LCD display shows more blue and is darker overall than the older 12 inch PB LCD. I know it's hard to compare them without having them side by side (which they did on the magazine). Has anyone noticed this? The magazine does point out that it could be due to variations at different production factories.
