My only concern with that laptop is the screen resolution.  I really like my WSXGA+ screen and anything with a lower resolution on a 15.4" screen seems way too large for me.  It seems like the majority of laptops are going to just WXGA screens with no option for anything higher.  Other than the screen, that looks like a great laptop.

You nailed it down.

I will never ever buy a laptot with less screen resolution than (W)SXGA after my stay with nx7000. I did not see any display resolution upgrade option in dv5000t, which makes me disregard otherwise impressive array of features.

....the one upgrade that would sell me on a new machine would be some further advancement on NTB displays so that one day it could be less strain on the eyes. Even with SXGA you see a great difference between reading whole day from the screen and reading the same amount from a printed copy. Screens are unnatural and tirering. Got back happily even to B/W if you had the same contrast ratio as carbon paper (and high resolution), strange as it sounds.

I disagree, I prefer the 1280 X 800 because I like to game.  The less real estate the vid card has to push the better the game play experience.

It really just depends on what you want to do I suppose, I really appreciate the extra space when I'm working on stuff and most games play okay at 1680x1050.  When I purchased the machine, gaming was not a real priority for me anyway.
