Sharp to Cut LCD Production for Two Months.
Japanese electronics company Sharp Corp. (SHCAY) will cut its production of LCD panels as TV inventories piled up in China and the United States.

What’s the difference between an LED and LCD screen in a MacBook Pro?
Good question – but actually, the first thing we need to clear up is the idea that your MacBook or MacBook Pro has an LED screen and not an LCD screen. The LED refers to just the backlight portion of your screen, not the entire screen itself. There is a common misconception that the current model MacBook and MacBook Pro do not use LCD screens.  Read the article at 1080p.
