"Solid Laptop with Bellow Average LCD."2.0 starson by Lucem
Pros: Solid Performance, Solid Built with Minimalistic but functional look, Great features, XP support.
Cons: Really bad LCD, No DVI or HDMI, Odd Firewire port location.
Summary: Great Solid Notebook for serious users.
Price was also very attractive in a Christmas '07 sale. It has a nifty light that illuminates the keyboard when you turn it on.
What kills this Laptop is the poor WSXGA+ LCD. Yes is that BAD.
I could not believe how bad it is. Bad Dynamic Range, so colors are washed out, huge light leak at the bottom, LCD Grid is visible, Screen lacks brightess so is hard to see outdoors.
At first I thought My screen was defective but it turns out that this low quality is "normal". Lots of users have complained about the same LCD issues.
Graphic Professionals should look elsewhere.
