    I found somewhere that to find this out you go to System Prefs > Displays > Color > Open Profile but beside Device Manufacturer and Device Model it is blank? Any suggestions. MBP is nearly 2 weeks old.

    You have to select the standard Color LCD profile before you check line 13, or else it will be blank as you have found. Select the standard profile and then check it out.

    System preferences > Display > Color

    Here, select Color LCD as your display profile and THEN open the profile and goto line 13. If profile is set to anything else, you'll see a blank.

    Install switchresx and export your display info. Open it in Text Edit and at the bottom you'll see the display identifier. Mine is Samsung LTN154BT. All of them are 6-bit TN panels.

    i actually have that display, but i have a question. I have noticed that on the left side of my screen, from the middle to bottom, the led shines brighter than it does on other side. Can i adjust that via the PCS illuminant number? Or should i not mess with that stuff, because looking at the PCS numbers I see 0.96420, 1.000, .082491

    No. Did you actually see it? I got both the lg and chei Mei and pefer the chei mei. It's less bright but less washed out compared to the lg one IMO.

    It's a TN panel no matter how you slice it.

    Is there a laptop that has a IPS panel? The Macbook Pro has one of the best screens I have ever seen on a notebook.

    True. It has nothing to do with Dell monitors but it rocks as a laptop screen.
