I , in the past few days, purchased my first laptop, a Dell 17R-5720. I have been very diappointed in the display. I set it at its top density and find the scren a bit grainy. Also the reflective quality in any lighted area is bad with lots of glare. I have tried all of the adjustments in the software with minimal improvement.

Would a 15.6 screen be any better! I think the laptop I have has True Life (what ever that is) display and the I(n)ntel 3000 integrated graphics. I think the resolution is ??? over 900. I think I will sell or return what I have and look for something else.

Any comments or suggestions? I don't do games or heavy video editing but would like a bright clear presentation!

I would change it for one you have seen working and are happy with before buying.

i have 15 and 17 inch laptops they can go anywhere from 1280x800 to 1440x 900 etc.im on a 17 inch dell vostro and its set for 1440x900.theres a lot of good 15 and 17 inch laptops out there that might give you a better screen resolution.you might want to look for one that doesnt have a shiny screen.
