    On my Macbook, I am begining to notice some semi-heavy gradient banding. Is this normal, or does my LCD have a defect? I dont do profesional work, but it can get quite annoying some times.

    Thanks :D

    It is normal.

    Before you go all berserk about this like so many people seem to have done, consider that pretty much every laptop ever made has this "problem". True 8-bit panels are expensive - they're all 6-bit in laptops. Dell, IBM, HP, Apple, etc.

    My 15" PowerBook G4 exhibits the same gradient banding.

    I noticed this soon after getting my MB. I do web development work, and find this highly annoying. My iBook didn't have the slightest trace of this problem. I figured this problem came from the low end video card in the MB's.
