This will reduce the price about as much as the upgraded LCD will cost so I'm definately considering at this point. A few questions about the WUXGA....Is the viewing angle a lot better? Is it brighter and clearer? Does the max resolution make everything too small? Also is the glossy finish make reflections more of a problem?
Well, I don't have my lappy yet, but I did get the WUXGA for two reasons. The clear glossy screen makes colors more vibrant and sharp. As for font size... you can adjust that in windows to whatever size you want... so you can be in your native 1920x1200 res, and just use a larger font. The viewing angle is a little more than the standard screen and it is also a little brighter. Basically it's better in every way except that some might be put off by glare from outside lighting. You can never go wrong with higher resolution though. Plus the dot pitch is also finer on the WUXGA as well.
