Very recently bought a new 2012 cMBP 13" (the upgraded model) and the display is not that impressive. Not in terms of resolution, I'm perfectly fine with that. The problem is that the display is very pale and low contrast. I have to fiddle with the angle of the screen to maximize the readability. For instance, dialog box borders are not very well defined and everything looks washed out. This reminds me of a friends Lenovo that you have to lean waaay back to see the screen right. The MBP is not quite that bad, but still worse that my wife's white 2009 MB. When I sit the two laptops side by side, the MB screen is not as bright as the MBP, but it is more readable and the viewing angle seems a little better. Has anyone else noticed this phenomena or am I imagining things? I tried bumping up the contrast one notch in the 'accessibility' section of settings but that didn't help. It actually made the problem worse.
