Everytime I go to a best buy or Apple store, I try to brighten up the laptop screens. They seem so dim to me.

Does anybody think this way too?? They make the screens brighter in the next update...

There is literally no way to know what the next lot of screens will be like (pretty much the same I'd imagine though).

If Apple don't make what you want buy something else.

Idk the other pcs had brighter screens...


I've researched quite a bit of different devices and the screen was pretty much one of the brightest of any laptop or tablet with the iPad being brighter at or around 420 nits

I have to say with my MBPs (I've owned both a 15" and 13" MBP in the past), they've been plenty bright, so much so, I usually turn them down quite a bit, otherwise it feels like my eyes are going to burn out of my socket.

The screen brightness in the stores is WAY brighter than you ever need at home. I rarely run my MBP above 50%; my Dell external 4k display burns my eyes on its default setting, so if you are used to that level of brightness in the store you surely don't need it at home unless you are sitting outside in broad daylight.

Oh gee never thought of that.

WOW IT WORKED THANKS!

I never take out my sunglasses


NEVER.

I'm here to serve. Seriously though, my rMBP 13 screen is way brighter than my 17" and 14" inch Lenovo's as well as much sharper, so I'm happy with it. Must confess I never look at stuff in stores, every laptop I've owned has been an internet buy.
