Default 15" MacBook Pro/LED review

Macintouch has a detailed review by Robert Mohns of the new LED version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro. It seems to cover everything, and ends up a long list of pros and a few cons.

There are quite a few advantages to the LED display beyond the lack of mercury — more stability, for one thing. Greater durability, for another.

One of the topics is 18 vs 24-bit color (many laptops, including the MacBook, have 18-bit, which means there is some dithering). Besides comments on this, there are links to a site where you can check your own monitor, which is amusing if nothing else.

He also explains the difference between glossy and matte displays — the former has darker blacks and more saturated color, and it is recommended for games and other entertainment. For calibration, the matte (which is like the current Apple LCD monitors) is preferable.

Really a good read.
