    Considering the sentence above

    This is a useless comment since the 2007 MBP would not have had a retina display.

    What is the shell command that will return the LCD manufacturer? Or are all of the Retina displays a single source?

    The command below is just returning a result of "Color LCD"

    The command worked on my MBA, but not the rMBP. Any ideas on how to get the real string?

    For non Retina Mac`a
    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    For Retina Mac`s
    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    System Preferences → Displays → Color → Color LCD → Open Profile → mmod

    I don’t know what the manufacturer and model codes mean, but somebody else probably does.

    For my own part, I have a late-2013 15.4″ with manufacturer 610 and model A019.
