D5100 LCD unusable for manual shooting...should I care?

So I sprung for the D5100 today rather than the D7000 mostly based on price but also on the articulated screen. Now I read that in Live View there is no exposure meter indicator, no histogram, and no change in picture brightness, when in manual mode. I am a novice, and this is my first DSLR. Is there a reason why Nikon would do this? I'm ready to return it and see if any other Nikon can do this. I think the D7000s are gone by now.
