    Hey everyone,

    I just got a macbook and I noticed that when I look closely at the screen, I can see it breaks up into tiny squares, I can see individual pixels..I was wondering if that's normal casue I didn't notice such thing when I was at applestore.

    Yeah, those are pixels. That's how the display works. I can even see the pixels on my iPhone's screen from decently far away. Were you that close at the Apple Store?

    Hehe, of course you are going to see pixels up close - that's how displays are constructed!

    But seriously though, MB's screen is subpar. The first time I saw the MB's screen, I swear I saw 'scanlines' on the screen - I was so used to the superior MBP screens.

    How come it's more visible than the old macbook. my brother has a white one and I compared. Mine was more looks like electrons runing across pixels that sort of thing..
    I don't think thats normal if unibody has a higher resolution then shouldn't the pixels be smaller and harder to see than the old mb??
    correct me plz if I'm wrong..

    You are not wrong. The MB screens are subpar. You might have the LG one - that's the same one that I have, and I can definite see edges of the pixels from normal distance.

    I have no idea what screen version I have but to see pixels i have to get pretty close to the screen :)

    i dont know how to describe it but it feels like pixels are not solid or still.. it feels like they are blinking but offcourse very fast..Colors are not solid.

    Could it be that my screen is not caliberated and should i play with different profiles? in that case could someone tell me what i need to do??
    I shoud probably take it to applestore and see what they say..
