Yeah, I saw the specs and that is a fairly miniscule difference, though the viewing angle differences are somewhat compelling. I am more interested in the impressions of someone who has actually seen both screens in action.
I ordered from Small Business and have had my 6000D for a week and have had two hardware issues that I've had to get support for. Both times I called I waited approximately 15 minutes to talk to someone, and both were native English speakers and resolved my problem. The first rep took a while to get everything setup for the technician to come out and do a motherboard swap -- probably about another 15 minutes on hold. The second problem, a broken key on my keyboard, was...
I hate to beat a dead horse, but I have one question that I don't see addressed definitively above:
Is the WSXGA screen significantly brighter than the WXGA? I'm reasonably happy with my WXGA screen, but I do have to crank the brighness nearly all the way up in order for it to be usable, and that's eating into my battery life. Is the WSXGA screen brighter at the same setting than the WXGA is? I'm still in my 21 day window for the WXGA, so I could switch if it's...

Ah, I misunderstood the question. Yes, WSXGA running at WXGA resolution would not look good at all.

No, it is not at all blurry or distorted. Truthfully, it's an average quality WXGA screen, it's just that when compared to nicer screens it doesn't have the same range of viewing angle and brightness. I've decided that I'm happy with mine after all -- I think my initial ambivalence is because I'm used to looking at my...
I suppose it's worth a shot, but from posts I've read here, I think it's very unlikely that they'll help me.
FWIW, I just configured my system in both the Home and Small Business stores with equivalent service plans and everything straight down the line. The totals pre-shipping and tax, with no discounts applied:
Small Business: $1794.00
My discounted I6000D was $907 before tax and shipping. The one from the Home store would be $1223 -- I...

Those $750 discounts seem to be coming like wildfire these days. I'm sure there will be another one soon (and another, and another...).
Just my 2 cents.
The $750 coupons in the Small Business store are significantly more rare than...
I just got the WXGA, and it's not awful, but it's not great either. If I didn't get such a great deal I would return it and reorder with the WSXGA, but I don't know that I'll be able to catch another $750 off $1499 with free CD burner upgrade and double memory any time soon.
I had the system just over 24 hours when the motherboard faild.
Typing along, minding my own business when it powers down for no apparent reason. Pushing the power button does nothing. I noticed that the power LED on the AC adapter was out, so I unplugged that from the laptop and the surge protector and plugged it back in and it came back on, but it dies immediately on plugging it into the laptop. *sigh*
Looks like I'm going to be waiting until Thursday for a...
