    Hey all.

    Just a quicky..i'm trying to ascertain if I have low blood pressure or something, but under 'energy saving light bulbs' with a yellowish tinge to them..when i look at the spaces between the keys on the keyboard I see that optical illusion thing where dots appear, you know the one..

    Does anyone else get that or is it just me?

    Sadly, my keyboard isn't generating this optical illusion for me. Perhaps I need to experiment with different viewing distances.

    I get it in the pic you posted but defiantly not with the keyboard.

    I noticed this the first day I bought a MacBook Pro a few years ago. It's exactly like the picture you posted. There appears to be dots between the keys. You're not alone at all. I guess it really is the yellow energy-saving bulbs.

    I also see this. It's because of the contrast between the dark keys and the light aluminium.

    Awesome on the picture it is easy to see, although its is more like dark grey and not black.

    Only one question remains.

    Is this a feature or a bug?? :D

    I see it too sometimes. It's more visible in pictures than in real life, I think
