I purchased the macbook air 13 mid 2011 within min of it coming online worldwide. Im currently living in Germany, so naturally as an native English speaker I opted to order one with an international english keyboard. I choose the 128 SSD. With the dollar in the toilet I thought paying a 40% premium b/c of currency conversion would have secured me the best and the brightest from Apple. Well it came quick...very quick and on the box it showed a date of July 10th, 2011. So yes we can all confirm the rumor of them waiting around. It shipped from Apple BV Netherlands and arrived at my door in Dusseldorf. I was a happy apple customer all but for 5 min until I said to myself I can't read anything on this display. I thought how can it be??? It was just to bright, text wore off centered, colors on the right corner with the stop light thing (sorry still new to mac after 10 yearshehe) were bleeding and yes I found this form!!! I did the terminal command prompt and long and behold I had an LG screen and on top of that I had a toshiba drive. I was pissed as s..t!!! I played with the color calibrator and nothing worked to my liking. Surprisingly, Apple called me to see if I was happy, and I said no. I said my unit is unusable. They sent TNT to collect it, and the sec TNT drove off apples website updated for a shipment replacement. I received it today, the build date of the brown box now is the 15th of July. So... this one has the Samsung screen and yes the Toshiba drive. At least the 50 / 50 rule worked this time. Yes, I can read finally on this screen and Yes there is a significant difference between the screens!!!!!! I want to say this again, yes there is a significant difference in the screens!!!!!! Apple you have something coming on this one, just give it a little, tiny bit more time. I did some research like others and popped open google-crome, everywhere around the world this is a discussion with the screens and drives, from Berlin to Tokyo people are complaining and buzzing this on online blogs. And yes, in all the stores I went to this week all models of display are samsung panels. Now on a side note, the Samsung isn't as bright and yes when the screen is pitched, viewing angles are a tiny bit noticeable. But the bottom line is the Samsung is the premium display. MOREOVER, you can read text on it at any brightness setting. For all of you out there that received an LG display, return it, replace it, demand a new one until apple gets it right, for you will never, ever be happy without it!!!
