    Would someone who has received the new 17" describe the new screen? Can you post the model number? (It can be located in system preferences -> displays -> colors -> select color lcd profile -> open profile -> Line 13 has the model #) Also can you describe any light leakage one has (especially is there is stage lighting on the bottom).

    Any insight would be appreciated!

    Forum rules states no bumping.

    You should have asked the question in the popular "received" thread instead of making your own thread with vague title.

    Mine is the new matte display... It is very very clear!! At 2.3 mp it is medical grade.. I couldn't find the model number in system preferences... From my early testing... The Grayscale quality is very good... And the colour is even better... You notice no difference between the 9400 and the 9600... But it is great for watching movies and what!!

    Will report back if I have anymore...

    When I go in to the menu on mine it doesnt display device ID or Manufacturer info for the Display.

    However no backlight bleeding, the display is 100% perfect. I have the glossy.

    I needed it for work... and as It was purchased through a govermant organization... they haggled and eventually we got it yesterday... I have been sitting looking at delays for long enough, and as it is my main mobile platform I badly needed the new upgrade!!! I do mean the Matte Screen by the way... You weren't being rude by asking...

    You have to go down to Line 13, and it should display it then.
