Laptop Screen Question - Resolution Help

My boss is looking at the HP dv9000t notebook. He's really into photography and was wondering which screen would show the "truest" colors. They offer:

     17.0" WXGA+ BrightView Widescreen (1440x900)
     17.0" WSXGA+ BrightView Widescreen (1680x1050)
      17.0" WXGA+ Ultra BrightView Widescreen (1440x900)

Couldn't quite understand why the Ultra BrightView was so much more expensive but had less resolution. Any ideas or reccomendations?

The ultra brightview has a bigger contrast and it is better in bad lighting conditions (direct sunlight) and also when viewed from extreme angles. If it is going to be mainly used in an office environment where the lighting is normal, that isn't such an important factor and I'd rather get the display with the higher resolution.

"'Truest' colors" sounds a wee bit subjective to me - any advice is likely to be questioned.... I'd go for the one with the most pixels if I were into photography and wanted one of those babies.

BrightView is HP Compaq’s marketing name for its latest in anti-reflective LCD screen technology.

BrightView is HP's version of the now-standard glossy screens found on many widescreen notebooks.

Ultra BrightView technology utilizes two lamps to give a much brighter screen view. HP advertises Ultra BrightView as achieving nearly plasma TV levels of brightness, and the difference in brightness between two and one lamp is significant.

The Ultra Brightview screen is significantly brighter.
