Not for me it's not. I like 1920x1200 resolution on my laptop but then maybe I am just awkward as I have a 30" 2560x1600 screen as the main monitor on my Mac pro with a 24" 1920x1200 as a secondary.

It's called personal preference.

The Sony "F" series screens are not LED and are glossy. VGA port?! That's a plus?!

Well unless you utilize the FCS of tools, it's not!!

Agree w/you Nigel; 1920x1200 is superb for my needs as well as I figure it's always nice to have that bit of extra rez; hence your 2560x1600 30-inch monitor!!

And finding a "MATTE" finish laptop screen is a rare thing these days....as well as for desktop monitors.
