Any new input from Apple for those who talked to them about the screen?

    I remember reading several postings in early December about people who had been in contact with Apple and in some cases who had been contacted directly by Apple.
    Have there been any development and new info/feedback from Apple?

    I went to the Apple Store in Willow bend yesterday and the new 1.6 Rev B they had unpacked had a really bad screen, actually worse than the 1.8 they have had on display since november! I now completely understand when people complain about eye strain when viewing a bad screen. Felt my eyes water after a few minutes. Could be that I stared a lot too but it has never happened to me before. I cant believe they release such a bad screen on their flagship laptop. No way I can justify buying one until they have fixed this.
    I also noticed the lack of sharpness in text etc.

    Now I need to go back to Microcenter where I don't remember seeing the lines on a 1.8 they got in right before Christmas to make a comparison.
    But it really shouldn't be a gamble when ordering a MBA whether you get an acceptable screen or not.
    Compared to the MBP yesterday the MBA was unacceptable...
    No money from me to Apple at this point!

    It was late December and they told me that it would take a couple of weeks for me to get a replacement. So I gave the Rev B back and got myself a Rev a for half the cost and could not be happier.
    Screen is the most important part of a Notebook and the Rev A kicks the Rev B's butt in this regard.
