Which LCD?

by Momo26 - 8/9/05 4:49 PM

It's comming down to the minor details I any suggestions/comments on this particular topic would be appreciated.

The Inspiron 6000d from Dell comes standard with a "15.4 inch WXGA LCD Panel"

The next upgrade would be the "15.4 inch UltraSharp WSXGA+ LCD Panel" [add $100CDN] and then "15.4 inch UltraSharp WUXGA LCD Panel" [add $200CDN]. But I do not want to spend an extra $200 on the LCD. Nor do I need the resolution to be THAT small.

So it is down to the standard WXGA LCD or the upgrade to the WUXGA. How much of a difference is there? Is it worth an additional $100? My budget is limited and already i'm exceeding it to purchase this machine.

Keep in mind this model will come with 128MB ATI's Mobility Radeon x300 graphics (if that makes a difference in the LCD quality ect).

Note that I do not plan to play games or do any graphic rendering of any sort. This machine will be used for business studies ect and Internet.

I've read that the LCD (do not recall which exact LCD but it was the same make - Samsung) tends to pixilate some of the images. I want to avoid that and i'd rather have a sharp, crisp display on both images and icons.

Please include and LCD leakages that may occur more from one LCD than another ect.
