Apple sees class-action lawsuit over notebook displays

I personally don't own a MacBook or MacBook Pro, but according to some owners the displays are not living up to expectations. These consumers are so upset that they have started a class-action lawsuit over the matter.

Apple claims that their notebook displays support "millions of colors," but some people beg to differ. The lawsuit claims that they only appear to support millions of colors with the "illusion of millions of colors through the use of a software technique referred to as 'dithering,' which causes nearby pixels on the display to use slightly varying shades of colors that trick the human eye into perceiving the desired color even though it is not truly that color."

I checked in with our Executive Editor Ewidson Then, as he doesn't go anywhere without his MacBook Pro. He knows that Apple has had their share of problems and that "Apple should really own up to defects on Macbook and MacBook Pros, however this lawsuit have no merit in my personal opinion. I personally own a MacBook Pro and never noticed this kind of problem."

So those of you out there using MacBooks and MacBook Pros, let us know what you think about your display. Is it crisp and clear, or grainy and sparkly?
