MacBook Air Display is One of a Kind

One of the first things I noticed in my unboxing and first boot of the new MacBook Air was the rich high resolution display. We have now learned that it is also one of a kind.

TechRestore will replace your MacBook Air with a matte display for only $249. In order to offer this deal they had to tear down the computer and remove the display. In doing so they learned that the new Apple notebook has a one of a kind display.

It has multiple layers with a paper thin screen behind the glass. Tech Restore CEO Shannon Jean told ZDNet, “It’s in layers, it’s insane. I don’t think there’s ever been a screen like this used in a laptop.” What makes it so unique is the LCD panel and the backlight are separate pieces. The covering is another piece. Jean also said that the display isn’t held in place like most computers with a housing around it. Instead it has an adhesive holding it together. To replace it requires a dust-free environment.
