Forum Question: LCD or LED

I bought a 13 inch Macbook, Unibody. I was told it’s an L.E.D screen but system profiler says it’s LCD. Which is it?

    It is both. LCD refers to the type of screen. LED refers to the type of light behind the screen. LED lights use less power and are more reliable than the lights that are behind older LCD screens, which I think were fluorescent — but not sure.
