Should the non-transparent menu bar look brownish on the right?

    I love the display on my new MBP, but one thing I've noticed is that the menu bar looks kind of...dirty on the right hand side, even when you look at the screen from a normal viewing angle. If I move my head to the right somewhat, it'll become white. This effect is more apparent with light wallpapers. Should the horizontal viewing angle be affected by such small shifts?

    You can create an all white image the native resolution of your screen and use it as a screen saver or view it and set it to fill the entire screen. Does it still look dirty?

    It's also a good way to check for dead/stuck pixels. Also use different colors too. Using the screen saver to automatically change pictures every few seconds seems to help too and make it easier. It's what I do with new laptop displays.

    I can definitely see shifts moving from side to side that way...I'm just curious was the "normal" horizontal viewing angle is. I just want to be certain mine doesn't have a poor panel.
