    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?

    Land of the Unexpected

    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

    That worked. Thanks. I should have just looked around in the forums more.

    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.
