It seems to be quite rare to see an unaffected PB170 so it’s good to make sure it’s the same brand because it would be a pretty big discovery if they found a non Hosiden screen.Yep, even the portable did. Although it’s never been explainable how portables don’t usually get TV. They can get it, but usually don’t. This is also far from the first time an image of a 170 LCD has been posted, oldcrap.org has a few. The guy who runs that site has a working example of every 100 series PowerBook, all documented! It’s a great resource.
I wonder if maybe they used better materials possibly on the portables and that’s why they are less affected. Possibly better sealant or better adhesive between layers?
