    What could lines like this mean with the MacBook Unibody? Bad GPU? Bad LCD controller? Cable?

    1. GPU
    2. LCD Cable/Connector
    3. LCD Panel.

    I think this would be the LCD cable (I've had similar issues). You can try opening it up and refitting the cable (ifixit.com) or go to an Apple Store.

    It's the screen. On this model, a bad cable would result in no image at all, or no backlight.
