I understand the thread very clearly, I guess I am just sick of starring at windows. For the most part most companies are just putting a non glare peace of plastic over there LCD's, and I beleive sony has put another light at the top of the screen, correct me if I am wrong. One thing you must notice about these displays is how much thicker they are to compensate for the extra layer, this would mean apple would have to redesign there latch and LCD casing. This would not be an easy little update, you will most likely see this technology on the next set of notebooks, like the transformation from tiBooks to aBooks and the clam shell iBook to the white ones.... Rest assured when apple does adopt this new screen you can bet your money that it will look more crisp and thinner than all the other brands. Theres talk of sony selling HDTV's in the apple stores soon as well, perhaps apple might adopt HD screens in all there notebooks thanks to sony, you never know. However mentioned the sharp notebooks, they are truly amazing screens, as well as some of fujitsu's screens, and that new HD screen from hp for like 1,200 at bestbuy is even amazing! But the graphics is integrated Intel 2 extreme HAHAAH Thats a real kick in the face there, people say apple lacks in the GPU department, look at what most similar priced notebooks are using, integrated!

I'm happy with my PB. It does what I need it to do. If apple designs a better LCD, I'd get rid of my TV, sell my 15" PB, and get a 17" PB and use that as my "entertainment system" :grin:

Well the way I see it Apple is a guerrilla fighter, using whatever he/she can get for the right price as far as peripherals.

I remember ATAPI or SCSI HDs and CD drives interfaces when PC where already using SATA.

Apple is a relatively small company that has HUGE creativity for what matters most but isn't up to date as far as some moot points are concerned.

My 17" Toshiba laptop is as crisp as I can wish and if a PB 17 equals it I will be a happy camper.

But I just got rid of 200+ spywares and 5 viriis on my work PC while my PowerPC G5 doesn't even know what a virus is.

I'll trade a stable, efficient OS over a fancy display any day.

lg makes apples lcds

anyway

windows and mac os are both great in their own ways

to those who have spyware and viruses, either stop downloading porn or learn to use firefox, i have 0 spyware and 0 viruses on my pc

also to those who dislike windows xp, theres a thing called themes which it was deisgined for so you can pick your own to your liking

did apple change the lcd screen?? cuz when i saw the 1.33 ghz 12" pbook my eyes would get all weird - i get eye strain easily but when i got hold of my new pbook.. i didn't experience that all..

i checking out hte demos at the computer store i was worried that the pbook would be a bad choice - but me being a hardass on buying a powerboook i just sucked it up and took the risk..

i'm pretty glad i got an pbook : ))))))

http://www.macfixit.com had reported that the newer PB g4s (1.5ghz +) have a brighter screen than previous models.

Yeah well I went today to check the new X Brite out and it's KILLER, never saw a LCD that was as crisp as a high end CRT.

Now I don't know anymore, I might just get a PowerPC G5 and use it with the CRT I have on my PC...
