The screen options on the 1530 are really, really dissappointing. seriously? that's it? I've had a 1920x1200 screen on a 15.4 inch laptop since mid 2003... and the newest, bestest 15.4 incher from dell has a wxga? This design decision is really blowing my mind... I just keep expecting them to increase the number of options, but it keeps not happening.
They only just started to offer it not even two weeks ago on their main site. Give it some time...
As it stands, if I hear good news about the job opportunity coming my way, I will order one as it will fulfill MbWife's laptop requirements perfectly.
