That's understandable. I've heard those reports and it seems an issue with how Dell is slapping together the entire lcd assembly (shoddy construdtion?)....

The 800 lci at a reported "5.9 lbs" (which is prolly 6 and a half or so with battery etc.) felt so much thinner and lighter. This is one of hte reasons I'm staying away from Dell. I know JS has bigger issues with Dell though ....
