    The new iPad Air screen is IGZO, so I am guessing that next year Apples entire lineup is going to migrate to IGZO.

     

    Fair point. Next yr? 2015?

    Thank-you!

     

    P.S.

    What's with this forum auto-logging us out all the time, is there a way to stop that?

    I've participated in dozens of major communities/forums over the yrs & most don't do that.

    Yeah, IGZO not necessarily flawless either (at least Sharp's):

    If the IGZO panel is what is used in the iPad mini then I can tell you that I've also seen problems. Went through 3 that all had burn-in and finally got a 4th without. However, this one has very washed out color, especially in the purple/magenta colors. I'm probably going to return it, sadly.

    Hmm, from what I saw online, the Dell XPS 15 also has Sharp IGZO display. Has anyone experianced problems with those? Maybe the technology is just not ready, period.

    Got my new MacBook Pro 15 today (exchange).

     

    All in All I can tell I am very happy. Production week is 51 (W). Panel LSN-A01 (Samsung so far?). No yellow tint at all.

    Hard drive write/read above 710+ MB/s ...

    No creaking or sth.

     

    Could I be happier?

     

    63% - 2:43 hours left... Have to load and optimize for sure (big WLAN traffic because of the updates now)

    Congrats, I exchanged three times, the first two were SS with yellow tint and the third one was LG with no IR and no yellow tint

     

    Taking about your battery, mine was 5.5 hours at first but now I could get easily up to 10 hours with wifi + music + web + 50% brightness OR 9 hours with wifi + music + web + 90% brightness. You could use "gfxCardStatus to control the GPU" .For example, I force my MAC use integrated GPU while I am on battery so it does help the battery life a lot. I have been noticed that even I used Google Chrome or some youtube, my Mac still automatically swictch to NVIDIA 750M so I will hurt the battery.

    I think It depends on Windows OS, GPU, Driver...and the truth is that I have never disssapointed with Dell XPS screen. I do check Dell IGZO XPS screen at Microcenter but I did not see IR. I was in love with Dell IGZO screen..........

    I've explained my IR syptoms, but I'm not sure they're bad enough to warrant exchanging my machine.

    Esp. since I've had it for ~1yr now*, what are my chances like, & how do I know if my IR's bad enough?

    Dumb question: for those that ordered the 15" 2.3 / 512 / 16 / dGPU, are these shipped from the factory in China? Or within the US?

    A022 right here.
    Right off the bat I noticed how dim it was even at 50-60%. The screen has an overall warm tint. I think this has been confirmed over the last 30+ pages that it is a sammy screen. It kinda bugs me to have to max out the brightness when not plugged in. Just wondering if it is a good idea to return since I'm still in the 14 day return period or should i wait for software updates?

    Just don't know how things are going with LG screens...

     

    Also have issues with the kernal task. Using a lot of my 8gb ram. Also debating if things would be better if I got the 16. Any thoughts?

    I'm on a yellow-tinted LG display, LP154WT1-SJE1, A019, so LGs can be yellow as well as Samsungs. Software updates can't improve screen quality. Apple won't consider "an overall warm tint" or dimness a defect so if you don't return it within 14 days they won't accept it later. I think 16 GB is smoother than 8 GB but that's my subjective opinion and if the machine isn't even using all 8 GB in Activity Monitor then it shouldn't make a difference.
