All the GOOD discussions on this board are getting buried by the incessant screen obsessions. If you bought a new Macbook; 1. It doesn't matter which screen you got. They ALL have a narrow viewing angle. The people who swear by one model number vs. the other are placating themselves against this fact. If there are any true differences, they won't matter to anyone when all the hubbub dies down in a month or 2. The screen on the Macbook IS. WHAT. IT. IS. 2. You can not request/demand a Macbook with a different screen model from Apple. The screen model # is not printed on the box. Apple is not going to let you open 20 boxes to find your dream screen, which doesn't exist anyway. 3. You can calibrate all you want. If a particular calibration makes you happy, go for it. But do not be fooled into thinking it changes the fact that these screens have a narrow field of view. 4. Moaning here about the screen quality will get you nowhere. Moan to Apple directly. And if you really want to make your voice heard, return the computer for a refund and write Apple a letter telling them why. If they got 10,000 returns, (not exchanges) with letters, for this sole reason, things might change. They will not change by rambling on and on (like I am now) about screen A vs. screen B on some random forum. And to those of you who are truly delusional, Apple is not going to change the screens this week, this month, or maybe even this year, if they change them at all, so don't hold your breath. If you are thinking of buying a new Macbook: 1. Go to the store, bring a DVD if you watch a lot of movies. Check out the screen using a variety of screens and apps. Know what you're getting before you get it. If you like it, buy it. If not, don't. Simple. If you can't see one before you buy, then buy from a place you can return to easily; otherwise consider other options.
