More power to you guys. If you like 1280x1040 resolution, then the SXGA is perfect for you.
It's us screen hog types that are crying over the loss of the UXGA n the 8890. Yes, I admit it, I am a complete screen hog - I find 1400x1050 cramped, and, call me a mutant, but I can read text at 1600x1200 on 15" just fine.
I just wish people would realize that one man's perfect screen is another man's nightmare to work with, and stop bashing each other over which screen is "better". It's personal preference - state your opinion and leave it at that. Just like Slacker did (nice post, Slacker).
BTW: What's next after the 8890? 8900? I mean, will they completely drop the 88XX chasis, etc? How about when they reach 5690? Are they going to go with a completely new chasis as well as a new model number? (Assuming that they go to 57XX)
I know this sounds really dumb, but....
BTW: Reading text on a UXGA is easy. It's called changing the size as displayed, meaning that you can have for example word display all text larger, so that the 10 pt. Times New Roman is still 10 pt. but it is simply larger. You can do the same in IE, etc. etc.
