New Apple Displays on the Horizon?

Apple released a statement today about what they are doing to help the enviornment and they stated they plan to switch all displays to LED techonoly and start shipping new Mac's with LED's in 2007.

I imagine this will work nicely with the new touch screen technology I expect to be in Leopard. I am waiting for the next round of Mac's before I buy a new one (since I still use a Powerbook G4) and this is welcoming news.

New Santa Rosa based laptops will start to ship on the 9th so it wouldent surprise me if the MacBook Pro line gets refreshed before the end of the month.

Yes I think we'll see LED first in smaller screens (cost reasons) and then next year we'll see hopefully larger LED screens with higher PPI (Pixels Per Inch).

Do you mean you have Apple info, or is this on the PC side? Also, are this likely to find their way into the iMac?

I donít have any insider information at all but since Apple will also use those processors, itís a good possibility that it wonít be long until you see a refresher. Besides, itís due for one anyway.

LG, Samsung and Sony has LED backlit on their top of the line LCD screens although the majority of those screens wont be out until around July.

Anyway, this article indicates that the fist Apple computer to use LED-backlit is in the 15Ē MacBook Pro model.
