Heh. I have a single dead pixel on my 15.4" WUXGA, but it's exactly on the edge of the screen, and since its WUXGA its teeny tiny. I have to stare at it for a few seconds before I can even see it.
I WANT A NEW LCD!!!
End of the road. Best we can hope for is a dramatic price drop on the EE CPU's. It's also possible that the system will support 4GB RAM sometime in the future, but even if that were available today, it would just slow you down.
