I only use the display when I'm not around another monitor. Which isn't often. I use an external at work, and home. My son has no problem with the display, but most times has his hooked up to the TV streaming Netflix. Oh, how I hate Netflix...
Fair enough, I am a lot pickier when it comes to laptop displays then most people.

I love that the x220 makes the Samsung monitors on my desktops look bad in comparison.

Funny that I'm the only one to favor an old old comp by hardware standards >.>

You're all lucky to buy such new comps x.x I have no money/job

I have never owned an Alienware and probably never will due to price.
