    Just short of the resolution, how is/are the screens in the hi-res 15" compared to the standard res 15" screen ?

    Been googling and can't seem to find a definitive answer on whether they are *just the same screen - just higher res* or there is quantifiable differences, brightness, etc.

    I've never read anything about discernible color differences, if that's what you are asking. It seems they are identical quality.. unfortunately neither are IPS

    I have to do some more ~googling~ or searching but I read a interesting thread response while back someone stating that the screen coloration on the MBA was not as good as the MBP, and the 13" screen on the MBP was of ~lesser~ quality than the 15". I'm not talking about resolution-pixels on this note...

    FWIW, I'm interested in the hi-res screen but just wanted to know the ~facts~ on the screen specs vs the latter.
