    Hi All,
    Noticed on my new 13" i7 MBA that about the lower third of the screen has these fine lines every other pixel. It's pretty subtle, I took a pic, but it's hard to see. But basically, it looks like you applied a tv scan line filter to the bottom third of the display. It's really only visible on icons and stuff and of course, that's where I like my dock. I have the Samsung SSD and am afraid to return it! Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this, or if it's a pretty limited issue. In the pic, it's easiest to see on the gray space at the darkest point between the mail and safari icons. Again, this doesn't photograph well... :)

    Macbook Air Display Problem

    Just wanted to let you know that I purchased the new macbook air i5 and had the same problem with the display. lines in the bottom of the dock. I took it back to the Apple Store and exchanged it. I would recommend you doing the same. :)
