    Well not the way you think called my closest Apple Store, the said they had a repacement for my 2.2 glossy MBP, so I wanted a fix,,,,the lower right hand corner was really bad still, drove there and the said sorry we have no 2.2 glossys or mattes......so to make a long story short......the gave yes gave me a 2.4 instead of the 2.2 still had to take matte but super happy, and no yellow tint at all....it perfect out of the box!!!!! all i had to pay is 40 buck+ for Tax:)

    Nice, practically a free upgrade!

    You are pretty lucky to get an Apple rep happily enough to sort that out for you - seemed a lot of folk were having trouble getting replacements easily for the yellowing issue.

    My original one had yellow tint on it, and I took it back to where I bought it (John Lewis - UK retail store) and spoke to the chap who was happy enough to open another one and let me sit them both side by side and compare the screens so I knew I was getting a good one!

    Thats a nice upgrade, you're really lucky! I wish that they would upgrade mine, luckily I don't have the yellow issue though.

    Nice that you liked the screen as it was from begining, which cheating I didn't meant that you where cheating, I meant sort of like "lucky bastard" / update more or less for free cheating ;D

    Do you know which manufacturer old and new screen had?

    May I guess old where samsung and new lg? ;/
