    Hey guys,

    This image is the background of website... It makes the screen of my LED-Display MBP flicker like crazy when i view it fullscreen either with preview or quicklook... Is this normal or should I have the screen checked out? It seems to manifest only with grayish patterns.

    Thanks :)

    every lcd monitor will do that, refresh rate messes with it, *hint* use a solid background, are you trying to hypnotize yourself or something?

    Well on mine it's REALLY bad. I tested it on my 20inch cinema display and on my old macbook pro (2.16 C2D) and both are showing the pattern without any flickering whatsoever....

    Mine doesn't flicker at all.

    Why is this bothering you again?

    Backgrounds like that will flicker when scrolling vertically...

    Is it the early 2008 MBP of the June 2007 one?

    I think i'll have it checked out tomorrow...

    I hope it's normal but on certain horizontally stripped patterns it's really apparent and my old mbp doesn't have the issue at all
