I headed to my local MacMall today and went away very disappointed with the quality of the LED 15" and old 17" matte displays of the Macbook Pro. I would strongly recommend prospective buyers take a look at them in person before making a purchase. Some thoughts: - 15" LED display is noticeably brighter than the 17" - Yellow tint is evident in 15" LED display when not viewing the screen straight on - No backlight bleeding or yellow tint on the bottom 1/3 of screen in the 15" LED model I saw *** Text display and sharpness is average at best. I opened up various web pages in three models that were lined up next to each other and the quality was as follows IMHO: Macbook glossy > Macbook Pro 15" LED matte > Macbook Pro 17" matte There's no way I can justify throwing down nearly $2000 for a laptop with a display that my crappy Inspiron 5100 beats hands down. If the laptop was in the $1500 range I might have be able to convince myself to pull the trigger. I was prepared to consider purchasing the 17" HD as an alternative but when I saw how big it was in person I squelched the idea. I'm so disappointed. I've been waiting awhile to make the switch and I guess I will have to wait even longer. If anyone wants a $30 promo code you can PM me. The code will expire June 29.
