SCREEN RESOLUTIONS for XPS Laptop Line

Why on God's green earth would Dell throw in such a cheapy LCD screen into the XPS 1530 ? I've been waiting for this laptop religously since it was 'announced', in the hope of a 1680x1050 screen, or at LEAST 1440x900. What is this, Dell ? Are you trying to scare away your customers with blocky icons and low resolutions ?

Ok, on a less rampaging note ..

Is there any possibility this might change in the future ? Would i be foolish to order immediately, only to see a couple of LCD options pop up over the next few days ?
DELL/ Status Update

We now offer 1440 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 panels as an option. Take a look at the Direct2Dell blog post on the idea.

    Whatever happened to this? I plan on getting a new laptop soon and am very interested in the XPS M1530, but I was disapointed to find that Dell doesn't offer a 1680x1050 resolution. According to this, they offer 1680x1050 as one of the options (or used to), but they don't anymore. Currently, they only offer 1280x800, 1440x900, and 1920x1200. There is no way I'm am going with a lower resolution than I currently use, and 1920x1200 seems a bit too small. Will the 1680x1050 resolution ever come back, or are we out of luck? It would be even better if they could offer this (or all resolutions) with a LED backlight.

    Thanks Dell! WSXGA+ screens are available in Argentina now. I've ordered my xps m1530 yesterday and I'm waiting for it. Late but sure.

    @lionel, **IMPLEMENTED** should be **IMPLEMENTED IN EUROPE AND USA**. In Latin America, specifically in Argentine, we are still waiting for more resolution screens. We only have available 1280x800 resolution.

    Now if we can get LED backlight and non-gloss screens I'll pull out my credit card.

    Great news Lionel. Any idea when I'll be able to place an order for a higher res screen in the UK?

    Dakkona if you don't have any luck, let me know and I'll give you the name of the sales rep I worked with. Hopefully he works the same segment you need and will be able to assist. He's out until Wed. I believe though. He made sure to get my order squared away before the was out for the holidays. My order reflects the 1440x900 screen part number and has an EDD of 1/11/08. I've heard of one other person who was trying to order through the member purchase and he had a similar problem when dealing with another sales rep.

    @cosmichellion: Really? I tried talking to a Sales rep (via Chat though) and they essentially said "Tough luck". Maybe I'll ask again.

    @dakkona, I realized this problem as well. I called up my sales rep and he was able to place the order fine for a higher resolution even though it is not available on the MPP website yet.

    This should be changed to **Partially Implemented** until such a time when the screens are available from all segments, particularly through Member Purchase Programs.
