    Perhaps this is common knowledge or has been posted before, but I was unsure of what to search for so I appologize in adv if it has.

    I have a 15" Powerbook and in the centre of the screen, opposite of the Apple logo on the back of the screen there is a brighter area, sort of like a vignette ring shapes sort of thing (hard to describe really). It's most noticable in dim or dark lighting. It starts to bug me after a while, as if its caused from the glowing logo. If this is true it seems like a stupid sacrifice in quality for style.

    Anyone else see this on their Powerbook?

    The glowing logo only glows because of the normal screen backlight. There are no additional lights used. I personally have not noticed this on my PowerBook.

    You may be a victim of the White spots. http://www.apple.com/support/powerbook/displayprogram/

    Even if your serial number ins't covered, you can still get it repaired free of charge if you are under warranty.

    Your welcome, I hope Apple repairs your unit in a timely manner. Just for note, the glowing Apple Logo does not cause any discoloration in the screen as it uses the light from the LCD's backlight diffuser.
