Have any 17" SR MBP models suffered from the yellow tint issue?

    I'm wondering if anyone with the High-Res 17" computers has noticed the yellow tinting problem at the bottom of screens. I'm not talking about the yellow when looking at an angle, but yellow at the bottom 1/3 of the display when looking at it straight on.

    Pretty sure its an LED display issue only--17" MBP's don't have LED displays.

    So, when they DO get the LEDs, they will have this problem?

    It's not an issue with the 17" model. However, the default "Color LCD" color profile makes certain light shades of gray look somewhat brown. A custom calibration fixes it easily.
