I noticed this the day I got my new MacBook Pro. It didn't bother me at first but it's starting to annoy me now. During normal use, looking at the screen straight on, the bottom is slightly dimmer than the rest. However when you view the screen slightly from above (or tilt it towards you) it's obvious the backlight is blotchy and uneven in that area, almost as if pressure is being put on the LCD by the glass: Move to the side and the effect becomes even more visible, particularly in areas of solid colour but also on forums such as this one: Everyone seems to be raving about how great the new screen is, and from certain angles and under certain conditions that's somewhat true. However, this unevenness seems unacceptable to me in such an expensive laptop. My old PowerBook screen may look dim and yellow by direct comparison, but the backlighting is far more even from all angles. Have any other new MBP owners noticed something similar? If so, would it be possible to have some pics to compare and contrast? If it appears I'm in the minority I'll probably take the machine back.
