KRP, you need to understand, though, that the XPS2 was designed for the hardcore gamer. If you don't play any games you shouldn't have got it. So, yes... for a non-gamer, the XPS2 is overkill. If I didn't game, I would've gotten something FAR more portable. I'm going to be lugging this thing to University. It's gonna be a challenge, but I made that compromise so that I can still game while away from home
I'm pretty surprised how readable everything is at WUXGA resolution, and that's with 96 DPI and only medium font size (default).
As for the poll, the laptop hasn't really impressed me all that much.. I'm pretty disappionted that I have light leakage when my 3-year old 5150 has ZERO leakage... damn I love that screen... too bad it's not glossy like the XPS2's. Trade-off I guess.
