Upgrade LCD Screen on a Dell inspiron e1505???

by pikerob / February 14, 2007 12:30 PM PST

i just received my new dell e1505 and i have the standard screen option (15.4 inch Wide Screen XGA Display with TrueLife screen). i was wondering if this screen was alright to have if i wanted to use my laptop for general purposes (watch movies, surf the web, and some 3D games). and if not so, then is it possible to upgrade the screen to, maybe, the 15.4 inch UltraSharp Wide Screen WXGA+ Display with TrueLife? thanks in advance for your feedback!

Contact Dell for the upgrade.

Why not ask Dell this question directly? You've just received it so it's the best time to ask.

my bad. i meant to say that i just recently ordered it, and it should be here by next week. i wanted you guys' opinion on the different LCD screen. basically, is Ultrasharp worth the 50 bucks or does it not make a difference in the picture?

Is it worth it?

It depends on your perception. Can you see a difference? Yes, definitely. Is it worth $50 difference? In my opinion it is; your opinion can be different. Anyone else's opinion can be different. Generally speaking most people like a larger display.

I have the e1405 with the high-end screen. The text is SO much better than my old HP that had a lower-resolution screen.
