MacBook Air Flickering Display Problem Fixed By New OS X Update

A number of people who had purchased the recently launched MacBook Air had complained earlier this month about an annoying bug that caused their Air display to start flickering under certain circumstances like waking the computer from sleep or while opening certain applications. Soon after, we received information that Apple had internally acknowledged the issue and had been sending out memos to their Apple Store staff educating them on possible resolution measures.

We now hear that the recently released OS X update may have finally brought a patch to the flickering display bug. A new support document that has been released by Apple has noted that the new Mac OS X 10.6.5 released last week would fixed the display issue.

If you are a user who has been suffering from this issue, do update your computer to this latest update and let us know if it resolves the problem.
