LED backlit screens coming fast
In 90 percent of notebooks by 2012
iSuppli has some fairly optimistic estimates for LED backlit LCD screens and it believes they will outnumber conventional CCFL screens by 2010.
It forecasts an LED market share growth from 13 percent in 2008 to 55 percent in 2010. By 2012, however, 90 percent of notebook screens will use LED backlight.
Compared to CCLF screens, LED screens consume around 20 percent less power and they're 40 percent thinner and lighter than their predecessors. The only downside of LED screens is their slightly higher cost.
