I could live with a 820 if the screen was the same eye-candy I've come to expect from all the Dell's I've owned (currently have a C610, D600 and D610).
Also, if your WUXGA screen has no issues, do you know if the WXGA and WSXGA+ screen are also without issues?
I also plan to buy Latitude 820. I am debating between Inspiron E 1505 vs Latitude 820. The price diff for same configuration is about $300 - $400. I have some concerns though :
1) Latitude 820 with WUXGA, does it come with TrueLife screen like how we have true life with WSXGA+ in E1505?
2)For latitude 820 with DVD -RW dvd burner, is it the same like 8X CD/DVD Burner
(DVD+/-RW) with double-layer DVD+R write capability in E1505
3) difference between 6 cell vs 9 cell? I dont want system to be heavy, which one is better option?
4) heard a lot about screen problems both WUXGA & WSXGA+
.. what u have to say??
5) I like big resolution, I saw one at dell kiosk it was 15.4 wsxga+ with true life... liked it very much .. dont know it was glossy/reflective. But I hate the ones in which you see dark screen when you move from one position to another. Like my inspiron 5100 notebook, when i sit i can see it clear but i lie down on bed and try to watch , the screen bcomes dark and i have to go get up and adjust the screen so i can watch laying down. Which type of screen is this one...??? I need something which I can watch even if i move and dont have to adjust the screen everytime.
6)hours of battery life ?
Basic one is fine as long as it doesnt add extra weight to the notebook. 6lbs is fine for notebook i think. Currently have 8lbs of inspiron 5100 which i hate and also bcause of its resolution of only 1024 * 800
7)if not comfortable with 1900 resolution i can switch to 1600 but in inspiron i will be stuck with 1600 max...
also appearance wise , is there any diff between wuxga vs wsxga+ true life? because is saw true life one at dell kiosk and loved it
is it ok to pay 335 more for quality of latitude plus 3 yrs warranty or shall i stick to basic inspiron and save money???
plz advise.... by the way anyone knows if WUXGA comes with true life or not???? i love true life screeens....
Suggestions needed !!!!!
