    Just wondering,

    When the screen is set on the lowest brightness setting (meaning one box highlighted with white) is the screen almost black on Macbooks?

    1 box is dark but still bright enough to view (on low light anyway), I wouldn't say it's 'almost black' though...

    and yeah, no boxes = black

    When there's 0 boxes, the screen is black but you can still see your desktop if you tilt the screen certain ways, or if it's bright outside.

    1 box is bright enough for me to use it on that setting 95% of the time, it's nowhere near black.

    yeahh same here...if i don't have my charger (like today i forgot to bring it to a meeting) i put it on one box and gives me like close to 6 hours of battery which is hard to believe but its true. And its really bright enough unless theres sunlight giving you a glare.

    Yes and if you go all the way dim the screen is black, which I love this feature. Especially when listening to music etc.... Why wear the screen out when ya don't have to? I wish my iMac would do that! :)
