LED-lit Displays in Upcoming 15" MacBook Pros?
Appleinsider provides confirmation for a rumor that first appeared on Digitimes (Page 2) earlier this month. According to Appleinsider, the newest MacBook Pros will transition away from "cold cathode fluorescent backlights (CCFLs) and towards LED backlights."
The rumor site targets the 15" MacBook Pro as the likely recipient of the LED screen in the "second quarter" of this year, but it is unclear when the 17" Pros and 13" MacBooks will also beneift from the upgrades.
LED-lit displays offer some notable improvements over the traditional CCFLs backlit displays, including:
- improved battery life (uses less power)
- maintain brightness longer over current screens
- more vivid colors
