    I was using my MB replacement last night and I noticed this....

    My previous MB never did this as the only thing lit by the backlight was the Apple logo. Does anyone else's MB have this problem? Thanks.

    I have the same problem with my replacement too. Mine is still less than a month old. Mine is much worse but I do not think it affects the computer.

    Mine does that too. I don't think it's an issue.

    HELP? Problem? :mad:

    Dude, smoke coming out of your computer is a problem, a crack in your screen is a problem, a CD stuck in your super drive is a problem...

    A small glow from a light source through a thin piece of plastic is just an anal Chicken Little stressing over something not worth stressing over.

    Relax, guy! He was just concerned if there was something wrong... I guess we could just call it an "issue" if "problem" is taboo :)

    Worst case scenario; you have a backlight that goes higher than you need it to.

    Turn it down?
