    ALL flatscreens, be they LCD or LED, grow dimmer over time. If your screen is growing noticeably dimmer over the first few months instead of the first few years, then there's a problem. How old is the Macbook and is it an LCD or LED?

    Almost every notebook uses LCDs (Liquid Crystal Displays). These can either be CCFLs (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps) or LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes).
    MacBooks are no exception to this and use CCFLs (although Apple should be moving their whole line to LEDs, since they are more environment friendly; 15.4" MacBook Pros already use these).
    If you are stilled covered by any type of Apple warranty, don't hesistate in asking them about it.
    Hope it helps!
