Does the new MacBook Pro display 16M colors AT LAST?

    Hi guys,

    I'm pretty sure every MBP user knows their machines had this real issue with not being able to display 16M colors but only 262 thousands or so and dealing with extrapolation on a software basis.

    Did anyone check those new displays yet? Are those truly 24 bit (able to display 16M colors)? Can you post some links to such confirmations?

    This is probably the key issue for any pro working on those machines, and I'm sure its gonna pop up soon if it already didn't.

    Thanks a lot.

    The new MBPs only display one thing, and that is the users reflection.

    Honestly though I don't know I guess well have to wait and see.

    Jony Ive & Steve Jobs think that you don't need 16m colors since they're being obscured by your reflections anyway.

    Question is wether there is any Notebook out there that comes with an 8-bit display (you can even be happy to get a desktop screen with at least 8-bit).

    Most (if not all) of these are 6-bit TN panels. Does Apple use IPS or VA on their Notebooks? I once saw the viewing angles of the last Powerbook and it didn't look like TN to me, but I have no idea about anything coming after that.
