17" MBP screen is borked. 2 months outside of warranty. It works if I squeeze at just the right spot on the bezel but it appears to be internally damaged. So I just ordered a replacement LG/Philips panel of the same part number Apple uses ($269 vs. 900 from apple or 5-600 from 3rd party vendors with apple part numbers) and in the process I'll be upgrading from the 1680x1050 panel to a 1920x1200 WUXGA panel like the "High res" option. Hey, why not, right? Should have the panel; replacement looks pretty straightforward (I've had it apart already). It may require some software beatdown to get Leopard to recognize the new screen (repl panel may not have the same hardware id that the Apple panel would) but it's been done by others before me, so it should be manageable. Wish this had happened a few months down the road because I'm sure soon the LED-backlit panels from the updated MBP will be widely available, but such is life. I'm also switching from glossy to matte. Learned my lesson on the glare issue. Will post pics of progress.
