    I was out Best Buy last night checking out the new MBA's. The 13" display of the demo model was terrible washed out vs the 11" model. They were side by side under the same lighting

    Can I assume it was a setting issue or just an issue to this particular one?

    Probably just that one. My 13.3 is comparable to my HR AG. Love that screen.

    Maybe someone messed with the display calibration.

    My 13" MBA's screen is almost identical to my 15" Hi-Res MBP's screen from a "color pop" and presentation perspective. I barely notice any differences moving between the two.

    My new little 11" MBA netbook screen looks horrid by comparison. Very washed out and this is new out of the box. I think the smaller screen tends to mask it somewhat but when you put them side by side you can see the difference.

    I'm playing with the color calibration now to try and compensate a bit.
