    Am I supposed to notice a difference in my display being better on my MB? I have the 9400M and did a clean install of SL... Is this supposed to look better or is it just in my head?

    Some of it could be the change from 1.8 to 2.2 gamma that Apple made. That said mine looks a lot different now too. I had the gamma set to 2.2 before and the colors still look different and the screen seems much brighter at the highest setting. They must have made some changes to the color profiles??

    I've noticed my screen is pretty bright compared to leopard. Also on a late 2008 uMBP

    I figured that it would look better in certain situations with the Open CL but not quite in everyday internet usage etc.

    My screen on my 13" MBP is decidedly different on Snow leopard. I put my original profiles back in that I used before my clean install and no question screen is hugely brighter!!!!

    OpenCL has nothing to do with how the OS/applications look.

    OpenCL does use the graphics card(s) but not for displaying anything. It uses (well, will - once people start using it in their programs) them for general purposes (e.g. converting video/pictures etc)

    Thank you for clarifying, it must be the brightness/gamma then!
