    Just seeing so much about the display issues on the Rev B MBA...

    I was wondering if anyone thinks the Rev A display is better than the Rev B (the ones w/o the lines issues).

    Or are they pretty much the same?

    Is There a reason they might have downgraded the quality?

    It's Apple. They did it with the iMac's LCD when it went to aluminum. And again in terms of the processing speed of the new Macbooks. ...And with the integrated graphics cards used in their laptops and desktops, after coming from weak (but better) dedicated cards.

    Oh, and they raised the price points for entry level systems to all three. :apple:

    The MBA screen is definitely the best 13 inch screen I have seen. I have Rev 1. I wouldn't imagine Apple downgrading their rev 2 screen.

    I don't understand why the new macbooks use the same horrible screen from the old macbooks. After 1 week I returned it, loved the computer, hated the screen.

    I absolutely love the OS, if I didn't I would of bought a Sony TT.

    I don't think it's really a downgrade as much as it is an extreme lack of quality control and probably a newer, buggier LCD model.

    To save money for themselves. Apple is greedy.

    Not sure how they compare. I would just note that the demand for LED screens is greater from all manufacturers today than it was when rev A was released - which may affect overall quality.
