RE: [linux-dell-laptops] Brightness on screen
- Yes, the spacebar touching the LCD issue is a known problem. I think it's a
major design flaw. I've been using the foam protector that came with the
machine but I feel that it's ridiculous that I have to do this. Luckily I
don't travel too often so I can live with it but it's still annoying. I
usually don't close the screen all the way. Other than that I love this
machine and I haven't noticed the dimming issue you mentioned.

I have the i8k running WinME Win2k and RHLinux7.1
can any of the I8K owners tell me if they have noticed their screen dimming
slighty after about 1hr's use on any OS? Its not a battery problem cos
the AC is being used.
Would really appreciate some comments on this.
Also what is Dell's standpoint on screen scoring?,
As there is no clearence betwen the screen and the keyboard
I am getting marks on the screen, which I am cleaning off diligently
however I have noticed one or two permanent marks that have been made by the
space bar. I have recently been putting a foam covering on the keyboard
closing the laptop, however this seems like a poor fix for what should be a
