Ill be honest this will be good for most of the people i know whom are not tech savvy. I have about 10 people so far that have somehow managed to scratch their laptop screen. Dont ask how because they cant even remember.

Yeah, there are some people out there this will be great for. Especially folks for whom "Gorilla Glass" is a buzzword that equates to "super material," or the ones that think glossy = good. It's unfortunate though because if this was an IPS panel with a matte screen I'd bend over for it.

To bad that Dell transformed the XPS series into an ultra-office series or something. I still have my ancient XPS M1710 with mobile 7950M GTX and still can play Diablo 3 and other not so new games...
