Apple Powerbook G4 (DL-SD) 15" models Screen Problem sign now

We, as Apple Powerbook Users, want Apple to take action concerning the following mentioned Screen Problem with the new Apple Powerbook G4 (DL-SD) 15" models. We want our display either be fixed or we want to be given a solution how we can fix the problem by ourselves.

The screen of Apple's latest 15" Powerbook (introduced October 2005) is severely broken. So far, it seems like virtually everyone who purchased a latest-model 15" Powerbook received a unit with a bad display.
The defect results in graphic anomalies most people describe as scanlines. The effect is created by the fact that every second row of pixels is displayed in a slightly darker shade, giving the image on the screen a scanlined or interlaced look. Several users have complained about headaches after extended periods of use so far. Besides that, the quality of the screen does completely disqualify it for any kind of graphics work such as design or picture editing.

While the problem may appear pretty minor to some users, Apple's Powerbook range is targeted primarily at professionals rather than consumers, which means that the majority of people who buy a Powerbook most likely do so because they want to earn money. As you may imagine, any artist who wants to use a scanline effect in a graphic will have a very hard time both while editing the image and when attempting to judge the quality of his final work. But it doesn't only pose a problem in this specific case. In general, for graphic artists, photographers and web designers alike, the quality of the screen is simply unacceptable because the LCD panel does not reproduce the graphics card's actual image output correctly.

    I have a W8541 PB5,8. The lines are visible in numerous areas in the upper section of display and appears even in Apple's own boxes such as Apple Logo menu bar drop down or "Get info" box. You don't need a 3rd party pic to detect it! Totally unacceptable
