M11xR2: Purplish alien head above keyboard when set to white

Anyone else notice this? Is it 'normal' or does this indicate a faulty light?

Thanks for the input.

Have tried (one of each of the shades of) green, red, blue and even purple. All these appear as I think they should. While white appears whiter than purple, it does have a purple hue to it.

Thoughts?

Post a picture of the white/purple alien head here so other M11x-R2 users can compare. I doubt it is a hardware issue.

Thanks Chris. Finally got round to it: http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/3026/dsc01628pc.jpg

The keyboard lighting is off so it's easier to see the purply colour.

Feedback about this appreciated thanks.

If this is the only thing wrong with my M11x I'd be most pleased!

I've noticed that "white" isn't 100% white on my Alienware machines (I've got three of them). It does sorta have a slight purplish tint to it. Try setting all the other lighting to white and see if the color is the same. I'm not sure anything is wrong with the yours from looking at your pic. My 2 cents worth.

Thanks Joe. I've tried a few other colours and they look as they should.

Would be good if we could have some 'official' statement that AW white = purply white - Dell-Chris?

Thanks Chris. Not wanting to put words in your mouth but are you saying that from what you can see in my photo that the purply white alien head is 'normal' for the M11xR2 when the head is set to white?
