Revert Precision M6600 & successors back to 16:10 LCD panel
I have a M6400 Covet and one of the best features is the 16:10, with 1920 x 1200 resolution. The panel/display & 1 GB video was one of the main reasons I got the Precision Covet, paying a premium price. I was pleased that the M6500 was upped to 32 GB RAM capability, and VRAM to 2 GB capable--could look forward to upgrading in future.
But the M6600 downsizing to 16:9 is disturbing and really doesn't make sense. DUH!
Appreciators and users of the Precison laptop want and expect the highest resolution panels. Being a premium product, and priced accordingly, the Precision M6XXX should retain the higher end panel--we want resolution, screen real estate, and look to products like the Precision M6XXX to provide such capability--otherwise, why pay such a premium?
For programming, design and other serious work, users need such resolution--if could be 4:3, even better. But 16:9 in the Precision, why? What is the thinking behind it? If it is just to save costs then that is wrong thinking?
I've wanted an M50, M90 ever since I had the Inspiron 7500 with the 15.4 screen--largest at the time in a laptop. Then went for the Inspiron 8200 with the UXGA display, to get the 1600 x 1200; stayed with that for a while, Went with the Precison M6400 for reasons cited above. It is all about screen real estate--being able to see more, do more--that's why willing to pay a premium.
So please consider going back to 16:10 on the Precision.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it--there was not much wrong with the M6400; M6500 stayed true to form, so why not keep it so, just upgrade the processor on the M6600, if feel must change something for each model--don't know why the annual refresh being needed--better to spend resources fixing bugs in system, and not detract from one of the Precision M6XXX key strong points.
