Reader Question on 2018 MacBook Pro: Does the 13-inch Model have Yellowish Tint to Its Display?

Thanks to B&H Photo for making this top-line Apple MacBook Pro available for testing. As this was written B&H Photo was offering it at a $100 discount( $100 e-gift card).

I am reading your blog since many years and think you are doing a great job by providing lots of information even for people who are not subscribed to your paid content.

I purchased a new 13 inch 2018 MacBook Pro with quad core cpu last week and realized that the screen had a noticeable yellow tint (with True Color turned off) which couldn’t be removed through the color settings expert mode. I had a very similar problem with one of my iMacs back in 2012.

When I compared the Macbook 2018 side by side to my current 2017 model and also my 2015 model it became very obvious. There are many reports about those screen problems with Macbooks but I haven’t heard anyone reporting about a similar problem with the new model yet.

Can you verify that your screen is identical to the 2015 model or maybe run a screen test like the Eizo monitor test to check for any yellowish tint? I think many readers would be interested in such a comparison.

Also I would like to know if you ever had the chance to try out an Eizo ColorEdge CG318-4K or the newer CG319X DCI-4K HDR? I have been only using iMacs and Macbooks since many years and don’t know how such a display compares against a 5k-iMac especially regarding the brightness which is noticeably lower on those high end color displays.

DIGLLOYD: I am not seeing a yellow cast on the 2018 MacBook Pro 15" model, by itself or side by side with my 2015 MacBook Pro (and 2017 iMac 5K). My color discrimination is in the top 0.1% (as per tests over te years), so I don't feel the need to run a test. :)

haven't seen ay of the recent Eizo displays; Eizo is fairly hard to get ahold of. Plus, 4K is unacceptable at this point—I'd want 5K which is 14.7 megapixels, versus a measly 8.3 megapixels for 4K.
