The new MacBook Pro 15’s display doesn’t put any unnecessary strain on your eyes (PWM-free)

If you haven’t read our full review of the MacBook Pro 15 with the famous Touch Bar, we strongly recommend that you do because there are plenty of new findings during our research, which will be beneficial to the general user.

The notebook can be found here along with its price and availability:

One of the most important things that we found, however, is the fact that the display not only covers 100% of the sRGB and 97% of the DCI-P3 color space but it’s also well-calibrated and doesn’t use PWM for regulating screen brightness. The latter is of great importance if you plan to spend a lot of time in front of the screen working or just watching movies.

You can also find other PWM-free alternatives on the market thanks to our PWM ranking list.

Yes. In fact I think I mentioned to you a long time ago that I contacted an Apple engineer who claims Macbooks use a 100Khz PWM below 50% brightness. Another Laptop review site did find that, they probably have a more sensitive oslicope and/or photodiode. Regardless at that point it should still be fine for vision, etc.

Thank you so much for testing PWM !
