Just a sanity check… on the MacBook, do you have “Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes” enabled in the Displays system prefs? When I got my PowerBook I too noticed a backlight jitter, and disabling this feature stopped it. It seems the ambient detection logic doesn’t produce a very smooth experience.

Thanks for the hint JB. I don’t think the MacBook (non-Pro) has an ambient light sensor. I just checked anyway, to be sure and couldn’t find the checkbox or notes that the non-Pro model has an ambient light sensor. So I guess it may be a backlight problem after all.
