    I just got my first MBP and I know about the yellowing issue on the bottom of the screens. When I do the test I can see it but I think it's just my imagination because with a full white background I can't see it. Anyways if I look at my MBP screen at an angle I can clearly see yellowing on all parts of the screen. Is this normal?

    Yes, that's normal. All LCDs take on some sort of picture distortion when viewed at angles. Some LCDs are clear from wider angles than others, and the distortion takes different forms on different panels.

    Some get very hazy / washed out. Others take a purple tint to the screen. The LED MBP panels tend to look yellow from the side. That's normal. And if your screen looks fine on a white screen or during normal use, then sounds like your laptop is just fine :)

    Actually, in Singapore, they recognized it as a problem and if the tint is noticeable (as it, not a slight tint, but quite pronounced), they will replace the MBP.
