Just purchased a new 2.2ghz (white) MacBook. So far I'm pleased with its speed, quality construction, and whisper-quiet-ness. However, the display seems quite poor compared to my current mid-2006 (black) Core Duo MacBook. Contrast ratio seems poor. Comparing the two MacBooks side-by-side, and at the same, straight on, viewing angle, black areas of the screen (such as Front Row, or a black Terminal window) are quite noticeably greyish compared to the '06 display. Also, black text on white backgrounds tends to look a little less black/crisp. Default color profile seems much too "bright" to me. It is skewed greatly towards bright colours, making everything look too bright and washed out. It reminds me of some of the earlier LCD iMacs which also had this issue. So far, however, I'm finding it very difficult to calibrate the screen to work around this problem. After using the built-in calibration tool (in expert mode), and following through the steps as I would on any other mac, everything becomes far too dark. I'm not sure if perhaps this is a driver issue with the new X3100 GPU, or whether its a fundamental problem with the display. Native white point is much cooler (more bluish) than the '06 MacBook. Not necessarily a bad thing, but interesting. Viewing angle (particularly vertical) is not great, but this has never been a strong point of any MacBook display. On the "bright" side: Brightness is ok, although not noticeably brighter than the '06. Also I have observed no flicker at all, which has been an occasional problem with my 2006 model. I'm considering returning it, mostly due to my disappointment with the screen, but also because I've been unable to convince myself that white is as nice as my '06 black model . But, I'm interested to know if anyone else has made similar observations. Is this a common problem or did I just get a "bad Apple"? Is it perhaps possible that this is a driver issue, or even that black MacBooks ship with better quality screens than the white models?!
