    Sorry if this is a stupid question but don't bash me for it. I know I've had my laptop for a while but I never really put thought into whether or not its a LED display or not... and that's why I have come to ya'll for information. My MBP specs is in my Sig. My MBP was bought 3 weeks before the unibodies came out.

    Also, another question... If I back up everything using TM onto my backup HDD and then reformat my MBP and restore back from TM, the lag that it currently has won't come back through TM restore right? It's cause I usually deal with large files and I delete them often so I am curious.

    Thanks In Advance.

    If it's the one with the 8600M GT, the backlight is LED.

    All MBPs with 8600M GT have LED, it's the x1600 moels that have CCFL,
    If your MBP is 2.40Ghz it's a LED!

    Yes my MBP contains a 8600m GT. Part Number is MB487LL/A. Thanks for the responses guys! ^_^. It helped. Also can someone answer the second part to my question? Even though it doesn't partake to the title of the thread. It's because I didn't want to start another thread...

    Thanks In Advance.

    There's really no way to tell. Handling large files can cause any computer to lag.

    Doing the procedure you describe will certainly help with any defragmentation issues, but you won't know if that is the true cause of slow performance until you try it. It may or may not be the cause.

    So if I do decide to follow through with this.... everything is basically cloned on TM right? and will fully restore my MBP like as if it never been formatted?
