    Hey all,

    So I'm using my new 13" MBP today and I notice that when I'm viewing anything with a white background, various pixels become transparent (looking at the individual pixel at different angels creates multi colors within the pixel it self). Am I crazy or has anyone else noticed this? Also, would AppleCare cover this?

    Can you post a screen shot to see if it is the graphics card or the actual display?

    Also, does it look like this:

    (ignore the black spot in the middle, as it is a dead pixel)

    If so, don't worry it's just what your display is build off.


    Also, can you explain a little bit better about this transparency issue?

    When I'm viewing anything with a white background, various pixels become different colors. This happens when I angle the display different ways. Any ideas?

    I think that is normal as LCDs have only a narrow viewing angle, so it could be normal, what you experience, as you already say, that when viewing your LCD from different viewing angles results in that colour shift.

    It's more noticeable in the vertical than in the horizontal.
