    I'm hitting bout two years now with my macbook Rev A and was curious how long I have until the LCD...light burns out (if that's the correct term)?

    The oldest LCD I have around is hitting 5-6 years old. It is a heck of a lot dimmer then other ones but still usable.

    Is there anyway to restore it outside getting a new LCD for the laptop? I heard replacing an LCD cost almost as much as getting a brand new computer

    You'll more then likely be buying a new computer before the LCD decides to give out short of it shorting out. :rolleyes:

    At least I hope you don't plan on keeping the computer for that long...

    lol well I just got my parents a new iMac (which they love!) so my computer budget is back down to 0 so it would probably be ahwile until I get another new comp lol. And this macbook is still just as fast as the day I got it....
