Ultrasharp refers to the higher resolution and doesn't reflect the brightness of the screen as the others you mentioned do. Maybe Dell should come out with Ultrabright?
We have a HP DV1040 at work and the screen is definately brighter; however, the resolution is much lower than the WSXGA and the WUXGA. I also find the glossy finish to be distracting in a well lit environment as it reflects light quite a bit. The mirror effect is distracting to say the least. The HP screen is fantabulous for watching movies in a darker room though. I would imagine the other "bright" screens are similar - at least all the ones I saw at BB were of the reflective variety.
I have to agree with the grainy assessment of the Ultrasharp monitor but it works for me in an office environment. Perhaps the dimmer screen will be a bonus for battery life too. 
that site guide-to-laptops.com is wrong, Dell uses "crystal clear" as their indicator of a glossy screen, such as on the 700m. The UltraSharp indicates resolution. Again, the i6000 does not have a glossy screen.
Why the exposed multimedia buttons? Does the machine work well with the lid closed and just playing music? All the machines I've used have had "hidden" buttons for lack of a better term...and they start hibernating once I close the lid?

LOOKING FOR GOOD MODERATORS TOO! PM if interested!
Have you received your 6000 yet? I still have a few days to decide on getting the 6000 versus keeping my DV1000. What I like about the 6000 is the WUXGA option. However, I feel that the trade off will be less portability secondary to weight. I like the light weight of the DV1000. I am considering the following configuration. Would you get rid of the DV1000 for this? I will be carrying this computer daily.
