    How common is this? I prefer darker backgrounds and this may be an issue.

    I'm over the yellow and the buzzing, but this too? Don't take me the wrong way - I love my Macs but I can't say I'm crazy about this..

    See attachment. Ignore the image noise, the big spot that bothers me is on the top to the right.

    That is actually good

    That is far better than the 3 I had.

    You will never get a perfect one.

    Am I being too anal about it? I've just never encountered something like this before.

    Well, if I am watching a movie in 16x9 on my iMac, and there is backlight bleeding through one of the bars, that would distract me terribly.

    When did you order this machine?

    Is that a screen shot of the brightest setting?

    If so, darken the brightness a bit and you should be fine.

    I notice a tad of bleeding but not anything to worry about. :)

    Contact apple, but wait until they have more in stores before exchanging it. (If it bothers you - I would probably live with it)

    - It's at its brightest setting

    - I don't watch movies on this, so that wouldn't be an issue. I do like darker backgrounds and this may be a problem, maybe not.

    - I will contact apple and see what they say. But I won't be able to exchange in store because they don't stock the i7's :eek:

    A 16:9 ratio film will fill the display without letterboxing. Other ratios will letterbox.

    To the OP:
    My display (27") has backlight bleeding too, probably a bit worse than yours, but I've tuned it out (i.e. I only notice it if I look for it). I'd only get my display replaced if the could guarentee no backlight bleeding, or significantly less bleed than what mine currently has. I don't like pot luck repair work.
