    Is it just me or do all the maxed out models, or more up-scale configurations have the Samsung screens?

    List your model type and what screen you have here.

    In another thread on this site people were listing what screens they had as well, but there seemed to be no specific pattern in which screen you get.

    The only pattern that I see is that the larger SSDs seem to be Samsung instead of Toshiba.

    I have a 13" w/ 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD coming in a few days. I will update as soon as I find out.

    You should make this a poll

    LG screen ultimate
    LG screen other
    Samsung screen ultimate
    Samsung screen other

    Maybe make it 8 choices, naming 11" vs 13". Random posts will make it hard to get good numbers.

    11"/8/128 LG screen :mad: toshiba drive :mad:

    post this into terminal

    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    if you get something that starts with LP you have an LG
    if you get something that starts with LT you have a samsung
    if you get something else you have the rare AUO

    for the SSD just go to about this mac---more info---system report----serial ATA----the samsung SSD ends with SM### and the toshiba ends with TS###
