    Hi all,

    This is my 1st post here.

    I'm thinking of getting a MBP or an iMac soon. Apple describes their displays as LED-backlit. Do they mean LCD display? Reason I asked is that I'm also considering buying Pantone MEU116 ColorMunki Create Monitor Calibration Device to calibrate the monitor, and as I know, the device only calibrates LCDs.

    Also I understand that the MBP monitors automatically adjust it's brightness according to the ambience light. How does this affect the calibrated screen as one moves the laptop from place to place?

    Thank you. Have a blessed day!

    Yes Apple uses LCD displays with LED backlights.

    With the ambient light sensor, if you are in a bright room it'll turn up the brightness, if you then turn the lights off, or put your hand over the webcam area, it'll lower the brightness. That's it.

    It's annoying and can be turned off. I like to have my screen at full brightness all the time. It's very bright, but doesn't seem bright enough. But that's just me. My buddy says it's too bright.

    With the difference in brightness the colors get darker with the back-light obviously, so find the right brightness, then calibrate the display.
