It's excellent in every way. Only one issue: the area near dell logo when I am working (bottom of the screen above the power button) is hot. Is it supposed to be hot? Is the backlight there supposed to be hot? This is my first notebook, so curious how other people's LCD's behave.
It seems that at the normal viewing angle, my screen is just lighter on the bottom (I think maybe the back light is there). It seems to me there is less contrast on the bottom. The bigger I make the angle, the better it is, but then the top becomes too dark and the screen is pulled too far to the back to be comfortable. Anyone experience this? Is this normal due to TFT viewing angle? It seems my viewing angle shouldn't be enough to cause such issues (aren't today's screens have at least 60 degree viewing angle? More than enough for a person sitting in front of the notebook?)... My black has a lighter shade on the bottom (like I have a dark to light gradient going). The background of windows supposed to be one color, but for me, gradient. Is this normal? Or should I return this so an engineer inspects this? I just bought this unit and it has no dead pixels, but for the money this thing costs, I just wish it was perfect. Can anyone tell me what their experience is and if their colors are even at the normal screen viewing angles (and close to them) ??? If I move my head down, bottom becomes great, but top becomes too dark.
It seems the problem is just the poort viewing angle of the 600m. It turns out the spec lists the vertical viewing angle at -10/+30 degrees. That is all. UXGA's on the other hand sport -/+ 70. Seems T40 from IBM doesn't do any better. However Tom's Hardware Review lists nothing about this in their review of the IBM. Why is that? Were you guys unable to see the issue or obtain the spec? Seems the screen is one of the most important parts of the notebook, why not a closer examination?
