When I bought the machine (early this year) the 1920 display was rated significantly better in reviews (and I got a price from Dell that made it about the same price).

Yes, the text is a bit small, but in Windows 7 it's much easier to rescale (than XP): go to screen resolution (e.g. by right-clicking the desktop) and click "Make text and other items larger or smaller". Default is 100%, medium at 125% makes the 1920 screen pretty readable. Pretty much everything takes note of the desktop scaling except browsers, and you may have to type Control + to zoom in a bit. (My wife normally leaves it standard size - she reckons it's perfectly readable).

If you use IE9, it respects your font-size settings and automatically scales the web pages to 125% (if you set it to medium).
