The MacBook has a flicker problem ...

Alas, hundreds of postings, this being only one of the recent ones: Apple - Support - Discussions - Has anyone got the screen flick problem ....

I can attest my 2 month old Core-2 Duo is flickery, though it's more annoying that intolerable. It's more obvious with the default blue background, less with white background. Better at intermediate brightness, worse with CPU load and heat. Sounds like a design flaw. I'm early in my warranty period so I'll just track it. Apple repair can be shaky -- if you get a repair too early in a defect issue cycle you end up worse than when you started.

Some people claim it's not so obvious when using XP BootCamp, which would be encouraging that their might be a firmware or software fix.
