I've noticed many people in this forum have a big 'fear' for the LG display panel on the MacBook Air: "it's so washed out", "I'll return my MBA because the LG display sucks", "the Samsung panel is way better". But, as many people have stated, it was more an inaccuracy with the color profile provided with Lion; not the panel itself. Also, the default ICC profile in Lion seemed to be optimalized for the Samsung panel – a fact which occured less 'popping' colors for those with the LG panel. Fortunately, Apple's latest OS, Mountain Lion, seems smart enough to choose a default ICC profile depending on which panel it recognizes. This has resulted in a great image quality even for those with the LG display – also, the 'LG issue' was just a storm in a teacup. At least now it is. I have to admit the forum topic here at MacRumors did affect me, actually so much that the first thing I did when I bought my new MBA was to check out the panel via Terminal. I also did compare my panel with my brother's – who has the Samsung panel – and there was a slightly difference in color saturation and contrast. But Apple has now solved this little issue with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. TL;DR: The LG display is great in Mountain Lion.
