MacBook Pro Grainy Display
Apple's production of MacBook Pros may be experiencing delays due to excessively grainy screens, according to a report from MacBidouille. The French news site has received reports of Apple and its resellers delaying or even temporarily refusing new orders, the system builder claiming that there has been a quality issue identified with the matte displays on 15-inch models. No further details have been given by the company, MacBidouille says. A check of the US Apple Store by Electronista appears to confirm the story, with all 15-inch models experiencing at least a 1-2 business day shipping gap. Glossy 15-inch displays and all 17-inch MacBook Pros remain unaffected. Members of the MacNN forums have been discussing the issue since shortly after the computer's launch.
