I'm curious to see if there is any difference in viewing angle between the various MBP screens. It's really the only thing I'm not satisfied with on my machine. Try this test: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/viewing_angle.php Then report back with your model (9C84 or 9C85). The test will work best, of course, with people who actually have their hands on both machines. Or, someone with access to an Apple store could try it there. I have a 9C85, and the top half of mine is distinctly green, and the bottom half-pinkish. Thus I can see a clear color gradient on screens of solid color.
