LED backlights for HP

The next major manufacturer to use LED backlights will be Hewlett-Packard, according to the Taiwanese site DigiTimes. Reports indicate that AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics are building 12.1-inch panels, which will be delivered to HP in June, in time for a new laptop release in the third quarter. Dell is said to be likely following suit, although this is unconfirmed. LED backlighting is more power-efficent than the standard cathode lamp, and also produces more vivid colors; it is however rare, with companies like Apple only just beginning to lay down plans.
