    I just received two Macbook Airs (Mid-2013) within a week of each other and noticed that the display bezel label has some variations in the font (see pics)

    Has anyone else seen this?

    I'm sorry, don't see any difference

    The font weights are different for starters. The label on the left is shorter in height than the label on the right.

    Which version do folks have on their MacBook Airs?
    For reference, the two pictures above are from the 13" 2013 MBA.

    I have the lighter weight font. Weird!

    Seems pretty insignificant to me. I suggest you take on a hobby.

    Nice catch! I've got the right one. The following command identifies the display:

    Code:
    $ ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    
    In my case, it prints:

    Code:
    LP133WP1-TJA7
    Color LCD
    Thinking on this level about his MBA is almost the definition of a hobby.
