    I'm waiting for my 15". Can someone post some good photos of the new display or at least post links? I still haven't seen anything.

    I don't think the new 15" is any brighter, but the new 17" is amazing. :)

    Didn't Apple advertise the new 15" model as 46% brighter?

    no. they advertised the 17" as 46% brighter. they have not said anything about the 15". one guy here on the boards said he called apple and they told him the 15" is 26% brighter but i call BS. i think the rep pulled a number out of his ass. and from the reports i am reading, the 15" does not appear to be brighter than the last 15". sorry folks but the 17" display is getting the awards for this revision. glad i went with the 17". ;)

    I just looked on the Apple UK website...... and yes they mention the 17" display being 46% brighter, but no mention of the 15". It does say the 15" has 26% more pixels - which I think people might be mixing up with brightness.
