I don't know what you are talking about... I had I8600 right before I got I9300 and my I8600 did NOT have a glossy screen. Result? I could not see ANYTHING outdoors if the sun was out (the screen basically looked black). With my glossy screen, the sun is still a problem, but at least I can work on my computer anyway because I can see the screen OK.
Perhaps I am mistakening and I9300 has a different non-glossy screen than my I8600 had, in which case I apologize, but if these are same screens than TrueLife screen will look better outdoors. Anyone else who tried both and can tell which is better outdoors? Please comment
And once again, whoever mentioned that games won't run at 1920x1200 fine... First, they do. In a year, they may not, but like many people said, you can still play at lower resolution because the blurriness that you are talking about is not a problem in the GAMES (and games only) since the way fonts are redered in games is different than Windows fonts are plus in-game fonts are usually much bigger. Although it is true that games ran at 1440x900 resolution will look better on WXGA+ screen, you don't really sacrifice THAT much with WUXGA+... and I personally can run most games highest settings with 4x AA/AF and am not sure what you mean when you say that games don't run at those settings. The only game that needs lower settings with my 6800 Go is F.E.A.R.. World of Warcraft, HL2, CS:S, and DOD:S can all run fine on high settings (30+ FPS), especially with overclocked video card.
Sorry, don't mean to sound so harsh, my diplomatic skills approach absolute zero... just tried to counter-argue some points as per my own experience
