|so...I guess ill just be blunt here...anyone who has seen a 5670 screen and a 8887 screen, could you deal with the 8887 and recommend still getting it if you really need the extra capability of the 8887
I have seen both the 5670 and 8887 screens and I preferred the 5670 wide angle UXGA screen for two reasons: (1) the wide viewing angles of the 5670 are very nice and (2) on my 8887 the colors looked a little washed out - games, DVDs looked better to me on the 5670 -- that's just my opinion. Now, to your question of whether I could deal with the 8887 if I just needed the extra capability it had? --> for me, no, because those extras were not that important. For you the answer might be yes. This is a tough question because there are some things about the 8887 that in my opinion are better than the 5670 (keyboard, extra 1" on LCD, 2nd HD option). To me, the 8887 would be perfect if they just stuck the 5670 wide angle screen on it in a 16.1 inch size of course! The ghosting issue on the 8887 is overblown to me, its not really a problem in practical use.
My question is whether the 5680 is going to come with a regular UXGA or a wide angle UXGA? From what I've read so far on the forums, the assumption seems to be that the wide angle UXGA option will still be available on the 5680. I can't wait for that 5680 mb/video card upgrade....
