    Thanks. Definitely looks like the screens get progressively more vibrant.

    You clearly don't need three. I'll take the Macbook off your hands. And that cool retro-styled telephone too. :p

    The MacBook's screen looks good compared to the MacBook Pros (they are good too).

    Can you stack them so that their edges are all aligned on one side so that we can see how much longer they are, relatively speaking?

    I've seen photos like this, including on Engadget's recent review of the 17" MBP, but the edges don't appear perfectly aligned. Perhaps it's just parallax error on my part. I'm not 100% sure though.


    If it's too much trouble, don't bother. Your photo is already pretty good. :) For some reason, I always think the 15" isn't much bigger than the 13", and the 17" isn't much bigger than the 15". Therefore, the 17" MBP isn't big at all. :p Well, it's still 17" diagonally, so I must be wrong.

    Maybe because they are not much different. 2" diagonal ~ .7x" vertical ~1.3" horizontal.

    The aurora is a great background. It can easily hide the crappy display.

    Yup, all mine. The 17" I use as a "desktop" computer. The 15" goes in my bedroom and the 13" goes with me everywhere.

    It is not a wind dial phone, it is "supposed" to look like one although fully functional, I use it for decor only. I like the retro decor better than contemporary.

    The 13" MacBook has the worst display of all 3 (although you cannot tell on the pictures). Now, Apple states on the website that the 17" model has the best display on any laptop out there which I do not agree. The 15" and 17" screen look almost similar except that the 17" screen has a more blueish hue to it (which I hate) but it is a little brighter and the higher res is a big plus.

    And you use the 13 all of the time? The screen is that bad?

    If you can afford a gold telephone, I suppose you can afford 3 macbooks.

    Thanks for the pic!

    Retro is cool :cool: - It's a faux analogue phone though, still looks awesome.

    Photos like these are useless. Notice how each computer is in a completely different place in relation to the camera, thats not a good comparison.

    Also, who watches their computer so far off center?
