Thanks for the reply's. I figured it was normal, just wasn't sure since this is my first experience with the centrino's.
I have a few more questions for you guys. What i've been doing is comparing the new 505 system with the one I will be sending back due to the dead pixel in the screen. Now I don't know if i'm being just picky about things, but the following are a few differences I have found when comparing the two...
First off, when the laptop is closed on the new 505, the right side seems to not sit down flush like the left side. On my first 505 both sides of the screen sit down flush when closed.
Next, on the new 505 screen, the bottom right of the screen has a darker tone to it when compared to the rest of the screen. On my previous 505, there is no signs of this problem. I think I remember reading in one of the earlier posts that somebody was concerned about this.
Ofcourse the above quirks are nothing major, but I always notice the smallest imperfections. I almost wish I didn't have this other 505 to compare the new one to.
What do you guys think? Something I should mention to Gateway or not? The guy I have been working with to get my problems solved has been VERY helpful. He said if I have any other problems at all, just let him know. Don't get me wrong, I love this laptop to death. I would just like to make sure everything is right with this thing the first time around so that I don't have to deal with these problems down the road.
I appreciate your input.
