Too bad it's Dual Scan... No way I could ever use one of those (like acid flashbacks)

Tell me about dual scan monitors, Are they junk?

The display quality is noticeably inferior to Active Matrix. Forget about playing any games, doing graphic work, or just about anything other than word processing. Personally, I would much rather go for a slower processor and get an Active Matrix screen than a faster processor w/ dual scan.

For the dualscan effect:
Either go to a used computer store/pawn shop in your area and tell them you want to see the best notebook they have or just drop a couple hits of acid and stare at your monitor...same effect.

I stopped at BestBuy right after work. They have the same computer for the same deal. You are right. Really bland and dull screen!!Thanks. I was ready to buy this!

I'd suggest Outpost.com, as they ship overnight free of charge and have a very loose return policy, 30 days with NO restocking fees (most places are 14 days with 15% restock fee, which on a $2k laptop will run $300!) Plus they'll send Airborne out to pick it up for $10. No probs with them ever, and good prices too. But yeah, avoid HPA, DSTN, Dual Scan.
