which one looks closer to the original?
In term of color, 8800 is more original. But my 8700 is old, so the screen might gone dead?
In term of aspect ratio, the 8700 is more original. 8800 seems to compress the X axis a bit. By the way, by original I was comparing it to a MacBook 1280 width screen. Who can really decide what is the original anyway? They both look fine. To get technical we have to measure the precise Width to Height ratio. I don't have an engineer grade measuring device right now.
Edit: Keep in mind since 8800 is shallower, it is farther away from the lens. At such close distance, that little difference is very big and will effected by barrel distortion
