I just want to know what you all think.
I have some criteria for the screen. At work I have 3 17" LCD monitors set at 1280x1024 and I like it (high resolution is okay with me). I also am planning on using this laptop outside and have heard that a "glare" screen helps in this regard. But, I'm also concerned about the possibility of having to play games at a non-native resolution.
Since you are using 1280x1024 I suggest the WXGA at 1400x900 its about the same as you are running now, WUXGA is overkill, small text, no web page uses 1920x1200, maybe one or two games can run at this resolution, so why pay for a glossy screen you can shave in, count the specs in your light bulbs and ceilings and run with a resolution that nobody supports so that you can squint at small text OR use the lcd panel at 1400x900 so you can read things nicely, Am I missing something here?? GO WITH WXGA I've used both, WUXGA is not practical and looks nice on a game or dvd does not make for a good laptop screen, WXGA is plenty bright, I dont use mine at max brightness, games and dvd's look great, alot of ignorant WUXGA purchases out there, Id say to most out there, if you ahve to ask which one, WXGA or WUXGA???? you need to go with WXGA.
