In another thread I started on a similar subject, (is the 17" obsolete) a responding poster stated that the LED/LCD screen is one of the most over-hyped new features ever released in a MBP. I was wondering if it would be better to wait or if it becomes a higher cost option, would it be worth it to pay more for an LED screen to keep my MBP looking as good in several years as it did the first day I used it. Or is it, as he stated a completely over-hyped feature. It has been stated frequently now with reviews of the new LED screens, that CCFL/LCD screens lose brightness incrementally over the usable life of the computer. If that is so, is my new 17" HD screen going to become dimmer and dimmer over the 4-5 cycle of new hardware to the point that in 4 years, will be looking at a significantly dimmer screen when placed next to a new screen and in particular a new LED/LCD screen? I know that we tend to over-hype new products in general and sometimes they seem to become more important than they really deserve to be, but in this case, is it really worth the wait or the added expense or should we just buy the 17" and 13" computers and not give it a second thought?
