I think there is a way to tell from the sequential variety whether it's the IPS or PVA but I do not think Dell's been promoting the PVA edition for a several decades now. Really, it is on the bulkier part, but seems strong. In symbol method, it's 1200x1600, not 1600x1200. There's a few web websites that are a little too extensive, but it's near ideal for workplace and online utilization. I do not run Windows vista but only described it was qualified for Windows vista cause it was entertaining.
