Today, Dell hosted leaders from 20
Netherlands-based companies and the State of Texas to discuss how to strengthen
ties between Austin and Amsterdam. The visit marked the start of a week-long
trip through Austin, Arlington and Fort Worth.
What's the connection between
Austin and Amsterdam? Both have high levels of broadband penetration (according
to Forrester, Amsterdam has the highest
broadband penetration in Europe and Austin, as of 2005, was the Most
Wired City in America ), both have a history of supporting small business
and fostering entrepreneurs, and both are home to leading research institutions
like Amsterdam's National Research
Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics and High
Energy Physics (NIKHEF) and Austin's University of Texas IC² Institute, the Texas'
Emerging Technology Fund and the planned Southwest
Academy of Nanotechnology.
Part of the visit featured a wide-ranging panel discussion with:

This maybe inappropriate, but I do not know of any other reliable,helpful method of contacting dell. Could you please investigate the "Grainy" display accusations w/ the WXGA+ and WSXGA+ screens w/ true life for the Inspiron 1520?
Below I have attached an image of what a "grainy" display looks like (direct url http://i2.tinypic.com/42jc8k0.png). The top is a clear display the bottom is grainy...it might be hard to tell, I do not know, but zoom in on it and you should be able to tell a difference. In any case my 1520 does exhibit this grain, white backgrounds, such as this comment box appear quite noised. My friends have m1330's, whos screens appear crystal clear, so I know there are displays that do not exhibits this. It is indeed a SEC (Samsung) screen. I would like a crystal clear display...
Currently I'm waiting on a replacement laptop because of this issue, and the fact that when the tech came out to replace the LCD, he damaged the laptop.
