How long will a macbook lcd display last? in terms of brightness before dimming
a long time.
LED or CCFL ? Wonder if that makes a diff
yea im not sure. i know mines cfl
On my iBook, the screen was noticeably dimmer after ~4 years. I mean, I didn't really notice it until I had my laptop next to one that just had the screen replaced. Maybe it was just dim to start and the replacement was brighter than OEM. It's a slow process and it's something you just get used to as it happens, but it's not something I'd worry much about.
If you have the LED backlit model the backlight life should be considerably longer. If you have a white/blackbook that's not the new Unibody type, yours is CCFL.
our macbook looks same as it did new, 43 months later
2.0 Core Duo, bought the day they were announced.
yea just when compared to my monitors for my dektop, my mb screen is dimmer by comparision. that makes sense though lol
Yeah, CFLs definitely get dimmer over time. I have an old IBM Thinkpad that used to be bright as can be, but is super dim now... but like the other poster said, you just get used to it.
I guess if it bothers you, you could swap panels. I did that on my old Pismo. Got lucky and had a friend find one in a dumpster - super easy to do on that model and worked beautifully. Not even keyboard marks on that screen. Guess it just depends on how badly you're annoyed by your screen.
