Apple :: New MACBOOK - Scratches And Screen Glare

Feb 4, 2009

im really considering buying a Aluminum unibody macbook. With previous notebooks, i ended up sending them back because of the glossy screens, attracting way too much glare. could someone tell me if the new macbook screens attract excessive glare, and can someone tell me there experiences with the screen. Also does anyone know if the Aluminum body scratches easily? is it the same Aluminum used in the older ipod nanos and minis?

Apple :: Macbook - Tiny Scratches) Everywhere On The Outside Shell

Jan 21, 2009

I just came back from the store where they had a display model of the White Macbook and it was full of swirl marks (tiny scratches) everywhere on the outside shell. My question is... Do they come with tiny scratches like that from the factory or are they pristine when you get them?

Apple :: Prevent Pitting And Protect From Scratches - Unibody Macbook 13.3 Inch Late 2008

Jan 1, 2009

I worked my off to get this laptop. So I want to protect it as much as I can for as long as I can. I realize that since this is aluminum, it may experience corrosive pitting if I'm not careful.

SO, what case is the best to prevent this and to keep scratches off? I dont care if it changes the look, just give me the best one!

Another question, how are u supposed to pull out the magsafe anyway? Everytime I try to take it out, it always feels like the edge is going to scratch near the ports

Apple :: Anti-glare Screen On The New 15" Similar To That Of A Vaio Z

Apr 14, 2010

I am ordering a mbp and have yet to experience the glossy vs. antiglare in person. The only thing I have to compare is last years Sony Z. It has a lovely screen which doesn't have much of a gloss to it, so I can only assume it is what you would consider an antiglare or matte screen (I believe the quality may be better, but that isnt my concern at this point). What I'm wondering is if the matte appearance of the two is comparable or of the mpb screen is totally different...

Dell :: Studio Xps 16 Glare: As Bad As Macbook Pro?

Mar 30, 2010

Is the glare on this model double glare, which I mean to be: glossy screen tucked underneath another layer of glass, i.e., just like the current macbook pro?

Regular glossy is tolerable to me, but the new macbook pro is just ridiculous to my eye.

Dell :: Screen Scratches Inevitable?

May 21, 2010

I have been extra careful caring for this laptop but it seems no matter how hard I try, the screen always develops a few "chinks" (small scratches that look like dots that cast a reflection on the actual screen). I've tried vaseline, Novus scratch repair, and, of course, sending in the laptop for a screen replacement. It boggles the mind that such an expensive laptop can be scratched so easily.

Am I alone in experiencing this? Are people just putting up with it? Have people found a reliable screen protector to use? I'm getting exasperated. I love everything else about the computer, but the cheap plastic that covers the screen just scratches so easily (I made sure never to close the laptop's lid, and still the screen managed to get scratched!)

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 :: Compared Anti Glare Screens On 15 Inch And 17 Inch

Mar 21, 2010

I had a chance to stop by at apple store today, and compared the anti glare screens on both 15 inch and 17 inch models. To my surprise, the 15 inch one was much brighter than 17 inch one. I made sure that both had max brightness settings, and it was clear that 15 inch one was superior. maybe this 17 inch display model was defect? anyone has opposite experience? (btw, I hate seeing myself and losing focus because of reflective glassy screens)

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?
