    Hello,

    I'm new at this forum. Have been reading for a while, but this is my first post.

    I would like to ask a question. I have myself a unibody macbook 13'' and was searching for a unibody macbook pro 13'' because of the longer battery life.

    On an auction site I've found a company that sells a unibody macbook pro 13'' with a TFT screen and a resolution of 1280 x 800.

    Now I have searched on the internet, but I couldn't find anything about a TFT screen on a 13'' unibody.

    My question is: what is the difference between a normal LED-screen and a TFT-screen. Should I go for it of is the quality much worse?

    Thank you.

    Light and water, or night and grass.

    LED is the backlight, TFT is the actual display.

    Longer version:
    LED - Light Emitting Diode: It replaces what is called LCD in many modern displays, it illuminates the display from behind.

    TFT - Thin Film Transistor: each pixel is re-presented by a transistor, thus the TFTs create the image, the LED just lights it up.

    You are totally right!

    Thank you for your answer and excuse me for this useless thread! @Mod, this one can be deleted.
