Jet and di-jet production are studied in collisions of quasi-real photons collected during the LEP2 program at e+e– center-of-mass energies from 189 to 209 GeV. OPAL reports good agreement of NLO perturbative QCD with the measured differential di-jet cross sections, which reach a mean transverse energy of the di-jet system of 25 GeV. L3, on the other hand, finds drastic disagreement of the same calculation with single jet production for transverse jet momenta larger than about 25 GeV.
