Dudes, I'm totally returning mine. I don't know if it's normal or if mine is especially bad, but I can't deal with the viewing angle. If I adjust the screen one way (tilting it down) all the colors at the top of the screen invert. if i tilt it the other way, the blacks and dark colors are completely washed out. If i keep it in the middle, I get inverted colors at the top, washed out colors at the bottom. this display sucks. I'm no fan of widescreen, but I think that's what I'm gonna go for instead. Oh, plus the cd drive started making this terrible racket and most of the keys on the right side of the keyboard either don't function or are mapped to the wrong characters (ex. hitting 'p' prints '-'). It didn't start out that way, so I'm re-formatting and re-installing xp to see if it was my fault.
