Well, I took a chance and ordered a catleap with tempered glass from red-cap, hoping that I would get a 2b model, since someone reported getting one from him. I ordered on the 16th, he didn't ship it till the 23rd, and it arrived today. To my disappointment it is a 2c model, so I am counting on Scribby to get the pcbs. There are no dead pixels that I can see, but I haven't looked to closely, unfortunately there are significant dust globs behind the glass. Another issue is when looking at an all white screen there seems to be a darkish shadow about an inch thick going across the screen at the very bottom, it is so faint that it doesn't really bother me though.
When I was reading all the threads I took note of everyone saying what a bad stand it has, but words cannot describe how bad it is, it wobbles if I sneeze too hard. I will replace it asap.
To the people asking about the ati 5850, everything displays fine on mine, including the bios. I also tried the PWM test, and I honestly could not get clear cycles. If I had to compare the pictures to the article, it looks like the 2009 macbook, so I don't know if I am just doing it horribly wrong or what.
