Such a dilemma.I have such mixed emotions about it all. Without giving my life story, this laptop was a Christmas gift from my husband who also has a DELL laptop, the 8600 15" widescreen. A lot of time, energy, and care went into this order as you can imagine. He wanted to give me the best. There were some delays with the order, and for our trouble they upgraded the display from the XGA+ to this UXGA! So I guess DELL thought they were doing us a favor when they passed on to us this inferior display. Now I wonder if it's off of one of the returns! Anyway, I am trying to be sensitive to my hubby's feelings, so we ordered the flat panel monitor that arrived yesterday. Also ordered because I just can't stand viewing webpages and icons with such tiny fonts. I guess I will have to chalk this one up to experience and live with it, and yes, move on quickly or I will drive myself crazy with this whole thing. I guess what is bothering me is knowing that there is a better display, and there really isn't 100% surefire way to receive one if you do a reorder and rebuild. I am now past the 21 day mark, so not sure how things are handled. In retrospect, I think it is very difficult to order a computer as a gift. It's such a personal preference thing. Another thing I find extremely difficult is to order computers online without being able to see it as the example of DELL's way of doing things.
