Well, sort of... I believe that screen brightness is not uneven... It is the perceived brightness due to the more limited viewing angles of the new screen. If you tilt the screen, you can notice that the area of the greatest luminosity shifts, thus eliminating the hypothesis that certain parts of the screen area are not lit equally. By the same token, you will find that you will not perceive brightness issues if you look at the screen straight on and at an arms-length distance. Thanks. SJ2.0... The spiderman of macrumors.
