I have a MBP late 2009. At work, I use a spring 2010 macbook pro 15 inch, the one with dual core i5 inside it. I have noticed that the brightness of my MBP is significantly lower than the one I have at work when using maximum settings on both. When put side by side, not only the 15 inch outperforms the 13 inch in brightness, but in color, too (my MBP screen is way hotter than the 15 inch, no matter how mush I tackle with the color settings). Just wanted to ask, if anyone has experienced any such problem with his/her macbook pro. Or it's just that the Spring 2010 models are supposed to be much brighter and clearer than the previews models? I also may be wrong, since I don't use the 13 inch a lot. I have Applecare, but I don't know if it will cover this problem, if it's actually is the problem.
