Which screen for the HP dv9000t

Okay, I know said this before, but I'm pretty sure this is finally the last one. I plan to order tomorrow which means my next questions will be about troubleshooting Wink

Okay, I've been pricing with the standard screen. I don't really plan to watch movies on it, I've got a big screen and stuff for that, if I would it would be minimal. I'm not a gamer or anything like that. I do some photo editing, but not professionally or anything like that, just personal photos and for fun. So, I've never really though that it would be worth the extra for me. However, after reading some negative reviews, now I'm not sure if I should upgrade or not.

Currently I have 1280 by 800 at 32 bits on the Nvidia GeForce 420 Go 32m

The options are:

17.0" WXGA+ BrightView Widescreen (1440x900)

17.0" WSXGA+ BrightView Widescreen (1680x1050)
BrightView improves color contrast in your images and video.

17.0" WXGA+ Ultra BrightView Widescreen (1440x900)
Ultra BrightView offers an improved color gamut by 72%.

I'm just not sure if it is worth the $50 for the better resolution monitor or $125 for the Ultra BrightView.

My thinking is that for me standard is fine, but I don't know after reading the reviews.

The Toshiba with 1440x900 or very close. Very nice. No screen upgrade and it looks very much like HP screens I see in the store. I'd be fine with "stock".

Thanks again for all your help, I couldn't have done this without.

With all your help, I think I'm going to need to get a sticker that says "Customized by Bob" Wink

Thanks again!
