Hey, folks, I just returned from Best Buy and Staples to look at WXGA screens.
Okay, first things first....I would NEVER buy a NB from those Cow Herders. It was like PT Barnum with a sucker being born every minute. I stood there and listened to the amazing Best Buy 5 year warranty plan and how it was an absolute necessity. Smoke and mirrors guys....Ugh
Anyway, they didn't have any 15.4" WSXGA+ LCD's, but I was really impressed with the WXGA. I actually thought some of the were WSXGA until I read the specs. I would be satisfied with that screen. Those compaq glossy screens were pretty cool, but man most laptops out there are crap. Huge, pent 4 behemoths with features that appeal to the masses, but really are worthless. Again...Ugh.
Point is, I think you'll be happy with the WXGA screen. I agree with every point you made about the Asus. I actually am trying to talk a coworker out of the Dell 8600 into the M6Bne.
PS. Can you please send me your new Asus so that I may test it out? Thanks in advance
