    Just had my MBP repaired for a faulty Airport card. One of the things they replaced was the a display.

    Before I had a 9c84 panel, went to System Preferences> Displays> Color> OPen Profile. Before (This was when I was running Leopard) I went down to 13 and found the panel type.

    Now I get 'aagg' 'para' 32 parametric tone response curve on that line. Underneath in the description device manufacturer and device model are blank.

    I'm curious to see what they've replaced, anyone got any ideas how I see what panel type i have now?

    Try line 17, where it says "Apple display make and model information".

    EDIT: Also, open Terminal and run this:

    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    It will give you the exact LCD model, and from there you can infer the manufacturer or google it to figure out what the Apple model number is.

    Cheers, that worked perfectly going to line 17. Turns out it's another 9c84, was happy with it before so not upset, I was just curious to know.
