    I have had this with every Mac, and same thing. I am probably OCD, but still bothers me.

    The lower third of the 13" new MBP, is darker than the rest. So when I am reading forums, the top starts off with white background, and the bottom is clearly a darker grey. This only is visible when setting the backlight to less than 75% max brightness. Normally I have it at half brightness. I am gonna be crazy with taking these things back. My big cheap Dell LCD and E6500 laptop have no where near the uniformity issues this Macbook has been having. Is this common or do I keep getting bad ones?

    Its hard when I bring it in there cause they crank up the screen brightness and are like "Yeah looks good", when that is not ideal conditions I use it

    It's your viewing angle. Make sure that the screen is perpendicular to your line of sight.
