Got my 8600 today and ya it really is not as ugly i imagined! but it seems i might have a screen issue - everything was very nnnice, crisp and bright until i found a lot of fingerprints on the screen (NOT mine)! that´s when i turned sceptical and ran MonitorTest and found out the bottom of the screen being slightly brighter, ~5mm thick gradient. is this within the normal limits and would You just swallow it?
the screen i otherwise perfect (can´t compare it though) with no dead pixels or noticeable ghosting..
And: how the hell i can check wether it´s a Sharp, Samsung or Toshiba (WUXGA)!? -i´ve ran 4 different diagnostics and checked my config. from dell´s customer center and they all just give me "standard screen" !? also the speed of my 60G hd remains a mystery..
but otherwise this baby is very cool
