Generally those who buy 1440x900 displays aren't searching for quality, they're searching for value. Fact of the matter is, you ordered a value laptop, and you got one. There's nothing wrong with it...it's just cheap. Notice how apple displays are $2500+...besides about 1k of that due to the fact there's a fruit on it, they're high quality displays. Similar displays in a notebook are usually only placed in high-end models of mainstream manufacturers or boutique manufacturers.
