Just wondering, thanks.
debating between 13" mbp, 15" mbp refurb (unibody), or 15" base.
EDIT: out of form, as I can't read properly. Here stood something about specs.
Original: Also use MRoogle for similiar threads, which may be plenty already.
I've seen several threads addressing this topic already.
There's a higher color gamut on the new screen.
is it noticeable? i read one thread where the guy compared his old 15" to a new one and said he couldnt see a difference reallly.
I'm sure difference is minimal. They touted the gamut at 40% better.
I've had both and yes it's better but it's not a big difference. If you don't do things where you color calibrate the screen, then it won't really make much of a difference.
Post pics if possible...
I don't have the previous model anymore. In any case, the difference is small enough that you can really can't see it from a camera shot of the screen.
Is it noticeable if you look at them side by side or only if you're doing really graphics intensive work and keep the screen an inch from your face?
It's noticeable in the sense that the greater gamut allows for more accurate colors. It's not brighter or necessarily more vivid, it's just more accurate.
Delete please mods
I looked at the late-08 MBP at Best Buy with a 9CA4 screen and then went to the Apple store and saw the new one with the 9CA3 screen, and to be honest they looked the same. Both were somewhat cold in color (blue/purple tint). Then again I'm used to CCFL displays (2707WFP and 2007WFP) which tend to be more warm (yellow tint) compared to LEDs.
i thought the previous umbp 15" had either 9c84 or 9c85.
