Why am I loosing screen height on each new laptop?

  • I've not been happy with the widescreen movement myself. How often do you watch movies at your computer? How often do you read web pages that take advantage of anything over 1000 wide? But it gets harder and harder to find standard aspect ratio (4:3) monitors these days. The solution is 1920 x 1080. Acer makes a 22" 1920 x 1080 in the $150 range, and the 24" is around $200. I've been pleased with both. At work I'm lucky enough to have 2 x 22" 1920 x 1080 monitors.
