Are MacBook Pro display manufactured by Acer

This may be a strange question, but a friend of mine (an acer fan) assured me that Apple uses Acer to for their display. I have not been able to confirm (or deny) this assertion? Does somebody here know one way or the other?

"I've never heard of Acer making LCDs AT ALL. In fact, I don't know of them making much of anything themselves. I think my Acer CD drive was made by Philips or Pioneer, and it sucked, so I never bought Acer after that.

Regardless, the main LCD manufacturers, in order, are Samsung, LG, Philips, Sharp, and Sony. I think Dell might make their own too. As far as I know, Apple just shop around for the best price/quality deal they can get on a product-by-product basis.

"Just checked my 15"" unibody and it's an LG panel... I've never heard of Acer making panels for Apple either.

I know LG makes the panel in the Cinema Displays as well. Again, perhaps not all of them."
