Apple Bringing LED-backlit LCDs to MacBooks
It appears that Steve Jobs is commited to honouring his promise by making new MacBooks earth-friendly.
|Apple Inc. last made an announcement about transitioning its entire line of LCD displays over to new LED-backlight LCD panels....Steve Jobs confirmed that by the end of 2007, Apple will rid itself of all mercury-based fluorescent LCD panels.|
Further, according to reports AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics have submitted panels for review by Apple.
|Au Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics are further down the line with Apple, having 13.3-inch and 15.4-inch panels already certified by Apple.|
Apple's 15.4-inch MacBook Pro line of laptops are already using the new panels, and the new 13.3-inch certifications indicate that Apple will be transitioning its MacBook line soon. Coretronic and Kenmos Technology, suppliers of LED-backlights, have been sourced by Apple, with Kenmos being preferred for its integration with Stanley Electric's LED V-cut light-guide panel technology. Because of this, Chi Mei Optoelectronics has decided to use back panels from Kenmos.
