    At the moment i have 2 mbas at home and the displays are different. my first mba had some build issues..so i called apple and they just sent me a second mba. the second mba's display lighting is much brighter especially at the edge of the screen. so the colours are worse and the black is not black any more...so i'm not sure what to do: i want the screen of my first mba and the build quality of the second one ;)

    Trixter - more info please. Is this a general truth about these screen codes or something based on more limited experience?

    You can see your display type when you have calibrated your monitor and open the calibrated profile.

    Under the 'mmod' heading my Model number says: 9C73

    I only have one to compare. It's 9C73 and it seems very good to me.

    Have you used colorsync? I have no idea what my mba display number is, but it's darn sharp. I like it better then my 17'' mbp.

    Maybe I'm missing the point, but to me the right one looks the best. More even.

    To be honest, they both look pretty bad in terms of bleed and uneven illumination. I suspect that they look much better in real life, but still.....

    I'd choose the right one because it seems to have less bleed and slightly better illumination evenness, even if it's slightly dimmer.
