    I'm quite impressed with the colors, deep blacks and vibrancy of my new 13 inch MBP. Overall, it seems like a much needed improvement over the unibody MacBooks of last fall (I had one, but sold due to crappy screen).

    Since using my new MBP, I've noticed that the screen doesn't seem as bright as other Mac laptops I've used.

    Today I cranked the brightness up on both my iPhone 3G and MBP and put the two side by side. I really noticed how dim the MBP seemed compared to my iPhone 3G.

    Is this normal? Anyone else out there that could confirm my test? My MBP has a 9CBD screen and auto-brightness adjust is off.

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure this is normal. Somebody here posted the MBP 13" vs. the MBA. The MBP 13" looked really good, very rich coloring, but the brightness was very weak compared to the MBA. It's just how the screen is.

    Interesting...

    On a side note, I wish Apple would just put the same damn LCD in each MBP. Shouldn't be this much variation across screen types. :mad:
