    I love my new macbook, but im not too happy about the screen. If you tilt it more than an inch the colors change. You have to look DIRECTLY at it to get a perfect image. I understand that LCDs work like that, but the better ones dont look as bad from an angle.

    Whats most annoying is that if you type on your lap and the screen bounces slightly as you do, the screen colors change as your typing.

    Any advice or is this something I need to live with.

    I understand what you both are talking about. I think for most laptop owners having a wide viewing angle is not neccessarily a good thing. I really don't want strangers seeing what I'm doing when I'm out in public. I do find that I have to have the brightness turned up almost all the way no matter what kind of environment I'm in.

    Couldn't agree with you more.
