First let me start by saying, I have great eyesight and don't have this problem with my mothers PC. First had the 11 inch air and thought my eye strain and discomfort was due to the size. The feeling I get is like being to close to a TV. So I exchanged it for the 13 inch pro yesterday. I didn't even bother expecting the 13 when I was there because I thought since I had an 07 macbook it would be the same. Well as soon as I got home and turned it on the feeling was INTENSE. So I googled the issue, and there seems to be a large number of people with this issue. So far the suggestions are sunglasses (yea okay, lol) changing the resolution, getting red lights and blue lights, and an anti glare film. Today is not as bad as yesterday but I am going to give it a few more days before I decide to return it or not. From what I gathered it seems to be the LED backing and not necessarily the gloss, so I dont know if anti glare would do anything. Any tips? I really don't want to return it, but if it doesn't change then thats what I have to do. Also, can anyone tell me whats the latest model with the older screen similar to the 07 white macbook. I dont have a problem with that one. It fell so the body is pretty damaged and would cost almost 800 to fix which I really don't think I would want to do. I called apple yesterday and the guy seemed pretty clueless. I asked him what year did they change the screen so maybe I can do my own search and he could not tell me. I would consider buying an older model as long as its not with this new LED screen. Thanks in advance.
