    So I've had my macbook for just over a year, so my 1 year free warranty is gone. My problem is that when I turn on my macbook, the middle/left part of my screen stays darker then the rest of the screen for roughly 3-5 minutes, and then it eventually lights up like the rest of the screen. What's going on?

    I'm not sure how the backlights are setup, but maybe one of the CCFL tubes is taking longer to warm up/fire properly.
