    I have a really dumb question… Can someone please tell me how to install this application?

    http://www.ekimsoftware.com/products/lcdtest/

    There are two folders in the zip and I don’t know which one to install for a new Intel Mac running leopard. I also don’t know how to install it since I’m looking at the contents on a PC and I don’t even have my new Mac yet. It’s the first thing I want to install because of my anal nature. Could someone help me out and tell me which one to install, how to install it, and if it even runs on a new Mac? :D

    I wouldn't use it at all. What you don't know can't hurt you. If there are any dead or stuck pixels, they won't be a problem until you notice them, at which point they will bother you for the rest of time.

    The Mac version unzips directly to an application, which you can immediately run.

    Hey thanks. One question, though, there are two folders. At least it looks this way on a pc. LCDtest.app and another __MACOSX. Both have the same contents. Which is the one for an Intel leopard? Thanks

    Both. Because .zip isn't a Mac format, it creates a __MACOSX folder that contains the extra stuff info that .zip can't normally store. It won't show up at all on your Mac.

    Why not wait to worry about how to install software until you actually have your computer? You're getting way ahead of yourself.
