    I have a late-2008 Macbook Pro 13" 2.53 Ghz Unibody with the 512 MB of vRAM, and a a mid-2009 Macbook Pro 15" 2.53 Ghz Unibody with 256 MB of vRAM. I have noticed an incredible difference in the quality of the screens, including the brightness. My 15" seems to be very bright and vivid compared to the 13". Can anyone verify this?

    I have the same setup, only my 15" unibody is first gen.

    I can verify that the screen quality on the 13" is poorer. The resolution is lower, the screen itself feels cheaper and the maximum brightness is lower too.

    It's not as bad, though, as it was with my 13" first gen unibody MB. That was the worst screen, probably suitable for budget machines only.

    It's not just the 15"'s screen size advantage. Apple might call the 13" unibodies 'Pro', but they fool no one.
