    I was wondering if anyone who purchased a unibody this month, got a chance to get the 9c8c screen. The reason I'm asking is that one of the guys in the applestore told me that the difference bw 9c89 and 9c8c has to do with the manufacturing date. But he is wrong. I also don't understand how the two screens can be from different manufacturers cause on both it says Manufacturers: 000610

    Anyways I noticed that they are pretty different and the one with 9c8c are way better than 9c89. It has a better contrast and its also brighter.

    Please let me know if anybody got a mb in december with the 9c8c screen. Is there a way to actually tell them to give u a MB with this specific screen?

    I got a 9c8c screen in December. I don't think it would matter when I got it though. Anyways, there is no way to determine what screen you are going to get unless you open the box, set up the mac instore then checking what screen model you have. It could take ages, so they probably wouldn't let you do that.

    I have the 9c8c but from november and it's really good.
    The codes have nothing to do with the time when they were built, they are in fact manufacturer codes. If you dig a little deeper on the forums, you'll find the manufacturers for each screen.

    Go in system preferences, displays, colors tab, open profile, then scroll down to the row that says MMOD and your display model is shown there.

    I don't think the date it was manufactured matters, but I got a 9C8C screen back in October. It's great.

    I just got a new 2.4 today because my 2.0's hard drive failed. My 2.0 was a 9c89, my new 2.4 is the 9c8c. I am not sure what the difference is but I am loving having the back light keyboard.

    I just picked up the 2.4 MacBook and it is the 9C8C screen. Got it in NJ on Saturday.
