    I just unpacked my MBA rev B and no lines!
    Trust me I have seen enough MBA's to know what to look for!

    So happy.

    Congratulations. How do you like your new MBA? If you ever get a chance to pair it with a 24" backlit LED ACD, go for it. It makes your MBA an instant desktop. It's pricey but worth every penny.

    Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

    Best wishes, and welcome to the club.

    Screen was great

    I just checked the screen and it is the model 9C8F that has been reported and I was hoping to get but didn't expect. I got iLife -08 instead of 09 but couldn't care less since I got the great screen they used for the Rev A models!

    How do we find out what display we have?

    Goto prefs
    Open color profile
    scroll down and second from the bottom you can choose display manufacturer and model and it will show you.

    Congratulations, for the screen, I'm glad people are now getting that rev, it wasn't until after I had bought my MBA, that I realized that they come with such screens, and since I had not seen any MBA with lines, I was a little unsure weather my display was actually flawless when I reported it in the other thread, I'm glad its what I thought it was.

    Btw whats the systems specs and manufacturing date?

    Uh yes its a great machine. I have yet to see the lines on a MBA - Mine is perfect - simply perfect! I got a Mac Pro with the 24" screen and have to say I am so disappointed the reflections are not bad at all... :D

    I opened Aperture and browsed through my latest import of photos with the 24" LED attached - just jpeg but it was fast and the colours are great.I noticed at difference in colour for the Air screen to the LED display. Anyway a computer and great setup with eht 24" LED from Apple.

    How do I check for manufacturing date?

    Mine is a 1.86/SSD.
    Now it is mine turn to ask, how I check for manufacturing date?

    Rockville (Despite REM's plea.)
    Look at the first 5 characters in your serial number:

    Notes: an example partial serial number of W8640 results in the following:
    -> W8 = Country code for manufacture (happens to be China .. surprise, surprise)
    -> 6 = last digit of year (2006)
    -> 40 = week of manufacture => Octoberish

    Ok, thanks then my manufacturing date is week 52 -08 which I believe is the same as the other MBA with screen 9C8F that was reported here.
