It was speculated that the backlight on the new iMac might be LED... does anyone know if the backlighting has changed? No mention of backlighting on Apple's tech specs, although brightness specs for the 24" would suggest that it is a retina-searing monster like its predecessor.

The iMacs do not sport LED-backlit displays.

So not LED. Just LCD. I heard that bigger screen LEDs were super-pricey, that's why not even the 17" MBP has an LED?

I don't think you can boost LED backlighting but you can certainly boast them. ;)
Damn you. ;) How about sport? Edited! :)
