    I've been working for a few days now with my new 27. I notice that most colors look pretty good, especially when opening Illustrator or Photoshop files from before. However, the yellow popup hint color seems really lime/green tinted.

    Does anyone else see this?

    I may be a little critical because I work with color professionally, but would love your input.

    Yeah I know, the image was more of a clarification so people knew exactly what what I was talking about, as "yellow popup hint" may be incorrect terminology or vague.

    I did mean how does it look on your unit.

    looks yellow as it always has been in all the other os x versions to me. Try calibrate your screen if it fails take that back and kick one of the geniuses in the shins.

    Thanks.
    Shins huh? How about somewhere else? ;)

    Just hover over a UI element and the "tooltip" will appear. You must hold your cursor completely still though.
