    I would like to understand who makes the new Anti Glare Hi-Res panels for the new MBP. Is there a 'good' manufacturer and a bad one perhaps? Which one is the best panel maker? (Assuming there is more than 1 manufacturer!).

    Mine is a Samsung.

    Its the best display I've ever had in a MacBook Pro since 2006, and I've been through 4 machines (8, if you count replacements). I tend to be pretty anal when buying Apple hardware (I've sent back my Santa Rosa MBP 4 times because the display had the yellow tint issue, had uneven lighting or backlight bleeding) but this display here is perfect. White is white, from top to bottom, very even lighting and minimal bleeding... no dead pixels as well.

    I love it.

    How do you see what manufacture has made your screen?
