You need to do two things... first go into your power settings and TURN OFF ADAPTIVE BRIGHTNESS. Its on by default, and it makes the display dull and lifeless under some lighting conditions. Turn it off, crank up the brightness and let the screen shine. Its actually a VERY good display. The second thing you may want to do is go into the display settings and set the scaling to 100%. By default its set to 125% (probably for easier touch screen use) but it takes something away form the display IMO.
