    AppleCare replaced the original display due to very horrible colors and viewing angles. Basically, you would either have light bleed (very noticeable) at the bottom) or contract issues at the top. No perfect viewing angle.

    Basically, I am tired of having a sub-par screen on this macbook. Even a cheaper laptop (HP, Dell, etc....) look much much better.

    After replacing LCD (and replacing Superdrive) and stating that the trackpad (which had problems too (ie. separating from the unibody shell) was within comes back with another problem.

    The LCD looks pretty much like the one it replaced...maybe slightly better, but now in the right corner of the screen (behind the black bezel), there is this line of white light that is really noticeable. See attached image. Has anyone seen this before?

    That looks like the backlight maybe. It seems that the black bezel isn't hiding it too well.
