    older mac laptops–powerbook & ibooks–6bit or 8bit displays?

    I have a new alum. 20 in. imac. The only thing I strongly dislike about it is the 6 bit TN display.

    thinking about picking up a used older laptop as a second, the only criteria I have for my older second computer is:

    1.) Laptop
    2.) 8 bit display, 14 inch or bigger

    thanks...

    ok, let me make this more simple, are powerbook displays 8bit?

    TN or (S-)IPS?

    the silence is deafening, and says a lot at the same time!

    After doing some research–and it took a bit of digging–it seems that almost all of today's laptops, including macbook pros, are TN displays.

    (correct me if I am wrong.)

    Why is it so hard today to make S-Ips displays for laptops?
    It has to be something more than just price, as price is not an object for many.
