    It's the nature of LCD technology. Sometimes you get "warm" yellowish screens, sometimes you get "cold" bluish screens (which produces better whites as you saw).

    I'm no Apple apologist, but frankly my best advice is, live with it.

    I tend to agree. You only really notice it side by side with another computer. You can try to call Apple again and explain the situation, but even if they replace it, maybe it still the same.

    It's really not that bad. In fact, I heard the "yellow" screens produce better color.

    I am okay with that if that's the case.... but it's not "warmer" you would really feel the "tint" when you use it actual.

    Also I have compared it to at least 3 MacBook Airs, and 1 MBA that is exactly the same model and same batch as mine.. all our "whiter"

    I can't really tell from the pictures, as I'm on my phone. Is the yellow consistent across the screen? If so it is not faulty and just needs calibrating. Beg, borrow or buy a ColorMunki Display or i1 Display Pro and profile your monitor. This will resolve your issues. Comparing 2 displays, when neither has been calibrated will never result in identical colours etc. By the way the yellow ish tint is probably more like real life than the burning cool white most people have their monitors set to.

    Ask the service shop if they have a display calibration tool, if not then check with creative agencies (Sign shops, photographers, ad agencies, etc) around your area. If you could "rent" one for 15 minutes you could use it to calibrate your Mac's color profile to bring out true whites and whatnot.

    LCDs are all different. I'm still shocked that these types of problems are so often complained about these days. 6 - 7 years ago people just accepted that there were variances and would simply adjust the display's color and go on about their day.

    Article that talks about calibrating displays

    The linked article also mentions the Apple Display Calibration Assistant. I also know that some photo manipulation programs include screen calibrators. Has the OP tried this?

    thank you for the responses, will consider.

    But we already tried "calibrating" it, and tried several adjustment for the "white" we still can't reach the white compared to the other MBA that has default settings.
