Apple :: Macbook Pro High Resolution Screen

May 27, 2010

I'm thinking of purchasing a 15" MBP and am debating between the standard screen and the high resolution screen. I had a studio xps 16 with the 1080p screen and though it looked great so I would ideally like to get the high resolution screen. However, I wanted to see if I could get some opinions on the readability of the screen, is text readable? Does Mac OS contain a feature like Win 7 where you can increase the text size? I really liked the look and extra space higher resolution screens offer but did notice on the studio xps that without increasing the text size text (which it did by default) text and menus were too small. What are your opinions on the macbook's high resolution screen, which do you prefer?

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Updated Chrome Browser Optimized For High Resolution Screen

Dec 19, 2011

Update your Chrome browser to Version 37.0.2062.94 m and above ... It works fantastic with the Y2P and the text is so sharp now for high res laptops running Windows ...

I've just updated mine 15 minutes ago, haven't come across any bugs or usability issue.

Touching on the screen when typing still does bring up the OnScreen Keyboard ...

Oh well ... At least the text is much sharper now compared to the previous versions of browsers ... I have a Y2P (i5) ...

Apple :: MacBook Pro And Resolution/fonts

Jan 18, 2009

Is it just me or does the font on the MacBook/MacBook Pro's seem a little blurrier than on a PC. It seems to have sort of a shadow or is blurry around the edges of the fonts?

I thought I read about this once, where the idea behind Apples OS is to make the fonts appear exactly on the screen as they do when printed?

Apple :: MacBook - Fan Speed Just Go Up To As High As 5k While I'm Surfing The Web

Mar 25, 2009

My MacBook has been acting weird lately. Its fan speeds just go up to as high as 5k while I'm surfing the web (Firefox), 3k on average. No embedded flash videos, etc. I've searched the net for solutions and none of them work for me. I tried checking my Activity Monitor, and the app that uses the highest CPU % is Firefox at 12% at most. I happened to see Quicksilver go up to 97% for a second then it disappeared. I tried looking for any hidden Print Jobs but I had none. I have 1 stuck process according to Terminal, but that's basically it. I have a 2.4ghz white MacBook, 10.5.6.

Apple :: Macbook Resolution Upscaling To A Monitor

Aug 15, 2009

I know the resolution on the new 13" pros is 1280x800, so if I plugged it into an external monitor of a higher resolution, 1920x1080 for example, would the image on the monitor be shown at that resolution, or would it still be the same res as the macbook pro, meaning it would be really pixelated on the monitor?

Apple :: New Refreshed MBP's Screen Resolution

Dec 15, 2009

What is the probability that the next refreshed MBP will have a high res screen as an option. At least 1680x1050. I really want to buy a MBP before end of the year, but I would definitely wait if the new models have high res screens. But, who knows when the new models will be released.

Dell says the 8700 is an upgrade, but I'm seeing lower framerates across the board. Is there any resource / testting / review that would prove that at 1600x1200 and up the 8700 just doesn't have the nuts to push the pixels like the 7950?

Apple :: Macbook Pro Screen Comparison

Aug 18, 2009

After the disappointment of buying a windows laptop, I've decided to buy a mac.

I'd like to get one of the new pros, either a 15" or 13". i don't need the 9600gt as I just web surf and do documents.
So its either
the 2.26 13" version
2.53 13" version
or 2.53 15" version.

What I'd like to know is which screen has more pixels per inch, ie a clearer/crisper screen.

I'm used to a full hd vaio screen, so which would be the smallest step down in terms of crispness of images?

Apple :: Washed Out Screen In Macbook Pro

May 21, 2009

I recently purchased the 15" macbook pro from apple online store. I immediately noticed that the screen was a lot less vivid/washed out than what I have seen from demo units at the store.

I did not find many similar complaints about the washed out screen so I was wondering if this is an isolated incident.

I have returned the unit and was thinking whether I should give it another shot (buying it in the store).

Apple :: New Macbook PRO 13" Screen

Aug 30, 2009

Is there a lot of backlit bleeding on the new Macbook PRO 13"? My 13" unibody Macbook has horrible backlit bleeding. We are looking for a second computer and want to go with this notebook (Macbook PRO 13") as we love our current Macbook unibody, except for the screen which has bad backlit bleeding. Are the new screens much better? I can't find any informationpictures comparing both...

Apple :: Macbook/Pro/Air Screen Calibration

Jul 12, 2009

I was incidentally looking for some calibration tips for my Unibody Macbook Pro (late 2008) and I figured, why not set up a thread in which we can actually share our calibration profiles...

I've got the 9C84 which is the LG/Philips LP154WP3-TLA1 as far as Google says.

You can check your display manufacturer in System Preferences click Displays, go to Color tab and "Open Profile". In this list scroll down to number 17 which is "Apple display make and model information".

This is what Google says:
9C84 = LG/Philips LP154WP3-TLA1 (15" MacBook Pro)
9C85 = Chi Mei N154C6-L04 (15" MacBook Pro)
9C89 = LG/Philips LP133WX2 (MacBook UniBody)

Don't know about the Air, sorry.

There are quite a few people sharing their calibrations on Macrumors and other forums, I've tried some of them and frankly, they're either too blue or too bright...........

Apple :: Macbook Screen Flicker

Jul 21, 2009

my white 13.3 inch macbook has developed like a flickering problem, its a good few years old, max memory on this one is only 2gb's. well anyways, the screen, it has only done it intermittently but when opening it for wake up, or when the screen dims, it ocassionaly does like a flicker thing, but only for a few seconds, then it stops. my guess, its the screen invertor.

Apple :: Macbook Pro Screen Flicker

Feb 10, 2009

i was working on my thesis in a completely dark room and realized that the screen on my macbook pro flickers even if the background is completely white. this annoyed me to no end since i have sensitive eyes, so i set out looking for a temporary fix before i try and get apple to replace my panel. anyhow, luck has it that there is a fix out there that at least temporarily stops the flicker (i havent seen it posted on nbr before, and my apologies if this is old news): press ctrl-shift-eject to reset the screen. once it goes blank, hit any key and your display should be good to go. worked for me and my screen has been flicker-free for ~30 minutes.

Apple :: Macbook Pro Screen Frame Crack

Jul 2, 2009

I currently have a Macbook Pro, from the mid 2007 batch. The frame around the screen started with a hairline crack at the base of the screen on both sides about a year ago and since has developed into full blown crack on both sides. It seems that the rest of the screen is fine, so I don't want to buy a new one. Does anyone have any knowledge about replacing the bezel (not sure what to call it?) around the screen?

Apple :: 17" MacBook Pro Screen Quality

Jan 13, 2009

I'm curious about the screen they are putting in the new 17 inch MacBook Pro. It says "The 1920-by-1200-pixel resolution (133 pixels per inch) means you can view more palettes and windows or watch HD video in its native 1920-by-1080 resolution. Perfect whether youre working in the studio or out in the field, the display offers a 60 percent greater color gamut than previous generations for richer, more vibrant colors and a 700:1 contrast ratio that makes whites brighter and blacks blacker." Does this mean that they are using real 8 bit displays? I kind of doubt it since that don't mention the infamous "millions of colors". How are they getting a high quality screen in a such a small compartment? The screen on the Sony AW is easily a half inch thick on it own. I can't wait to see the difference in person.

To me the screen is the most important aspect of a notebook followed by weight. I'm not a fan of Apple's politics, but this new MBP has me intrigued.
