The new screen, with a wider viewing angle will be better for other things too. IF you ever have more than 1 person looking at it, for presentations and such for those that use it for work, and For DVD viewing these things really make a difference. I know when I watch a DVD, I rarely like to sit in the same position for the whole thing, and moving around means I have to adjust the screen every time on my current one. Also, movies oftentimes have dark screenshots, and the greater contrast will really bring out the details of the dark colors. Just a couple of ways this will be better. This is really big news in my mind, cause it now hopefully will close the gap on one of the few advantages that the Dells and Toshiba's had, which was the ultrasharp type screen. THe other being battery life, which I don't see changing any time soon. But for the future of Sagers, this is really a good step forward. I would love to hear feedback as soon as someone has one with the new screen, particularly some side by side photos vs. a Dell or Toshiba, just to see the quality of the screen. But hey, Im not greedy, a good review will do.
