Does anybody know if the new Macbooks have the same horrible TN display as the old ones?
im wondering the same.
Steve told me they are "Gorgeous"...
well the last generation Macbook screens where not the same quality as the Macbook Pro screens, were wondering if its still the same
The LED backlight should make a good bit of difference. But I've no idea about the actual panel. I'd be interested to know too.
It's probably TN, just like all other notebooks on the current market are.
Now, the LED backlight will help A LOT to get that brightness up. It'll be just like the MBA/MBP screen I figure.
But TN, that'll be in notebooks for quite a while.
If it's a TN, it won't be like the MBP screen (unless those are now too?) You can spot a TN panel from 30 feet away. literally.
As far as I know, they've always been TN panels. At least for YEARS.
The MacBooks just looked so bad because of the old CCFL backlighting.
Yeah, TN is about the only option these days for notebooks. The old MB displays were crappy because they were cheap. The CCFL backlight had nothing to do with the horrible viewing angles.
the old MacBooks had TFT displays http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...duo-2.4-white-13-early-2008-penryn-specs.html so im guessing the new ones do now (well they better as theyre more expensive).
Well, I was primarily referring to the overall dimness of the old MB displays.
Viewing angles... yeah. TERRIBLE
