I have a question regarding display of text on the ibook G4 lcd. I have used a CRT monitor for years so don't have much experinece with lcd screens. Graphics on my screen look great. Likewise it is fine for watching video on. But I would rate the text display as fairly poor. I have the font smoothing set to the "medium - best for flat panel" setting, but I find the text does not show up very clearly or sharply on the screen, despite this. Often parts of the letters look ghostly or faded. Sometimes parts of the letters are actually missing. To give some examples of what I mean: when I look at the battery charge information, the numbers that show the percentage or the "charged" message look somehow faint and blurry. It is difficult to describe but the letters and numbers do not have a solid black look. When I went to look right up at the screen while looking at file names in the finder to get an idea of what was going on, I noticed that in fact the letters are not all black. The parts which look faded or ghostly from a distance if I move my face right up to the screen I notice are actually light blue or red. Awhile ago I was typing an email, and I noticed that sometimes pieces of the letters would be missing as I typed. I would type "S" for example and the top curve of the S would not show up. When I look at any file name in the finder with a U in it, the right side of the U looks faded and ghostly, whereas the left side looks more solid black. After awhile this really begins to bother my eyes. For all I know this is normal behavior with lcd displays and the quality is just not comparable to CRT, but I don't have enough experience with them to know. If someone who knows lcds well could let me know if this is normal or indicates a problem with my monitor, I'd appeciate it. If it is a known problem that can occur with lcds, and someone can give me a bit of information on what it's called, etc, I'd appreciate that too, so I'll be armed with some information if I have to call Apple. Thanks!
