    I've recently bought a Macbook Pro 13" and I noticed that in videos and in pictures, dark brown shades seemed to have a greenish tint to them... I've compared with my old laptop and my other Mac Cinema Display and both computers didn't have the problem... I've also tried calibrating/using other color profiles but nothing seems to help the strong green color. I have the 9CC7 LCD screen.

    Well then it sounds like you have a faulty screen. I would definitely take that back if I were you and get a new one.

    Either you have a faulty screen, or your screen needs to be calibrated badly.

    Mine had to be calibrated since everything had a yellowish tint, since calibrated the screen is just perfect.

    Try calibrating your screen.

    I've already tried... the yellow goes away a bit but the green is still there. Would you mind sharing your calibration file?

    I've already taken it to Apple and the other models on display didn't have the problem and they were a different model but they said they didn't have the type on display available...

    Well then tell them to send it off and fix it; you obviously have something wrong with your screen... if you have tried calibrating it multiple times and you still have the problem, there might be something wrong.

    You have the free warranty, have them send it off or just refund it and get a different one.

    But I think it's just a problem with the model because they gave me a new one at the Apple Store to try out which had the same LCD screen model and it had the same problem.

    .... but you shouldn't be having ANY problems with a brand new computer, that's my point. It should come configured and perfect when you buy it.

    If it were me, I would go back and keep getting new ones until they gave me one that was perfect, right out of the box. When you're paying over a grand for a computer, it should come perfect.

    Now if you can simply calibrate it and fix it, that's great; however it seems like you're going through a lot when you're buying something new.
