    Default The official bring back 16:10 thread (part 2)

    Given that the previous thread was closed. I've decided to start a new one.

    I would like to avoid bashing so much the 16:9 LCDs and focus more on what can be done to get back 16:10 LCD screens, especially for the professional and gaming market segment. Yes 16:9 screens are cheaper but there are enough of us who would gladly pay $30-$40 for the extra height.

    For now I've started a website where the issue is being discussed and where there is a letter of complaint.

    But maybe someone else has better ideas.

    To continue this thread on a positive. I would be willing to fork out $100-150 extra (depending on screen quality) for the option of choice to buy a 16:10 laptop if it would help out with allowing us a choice.

    It's my understanding that both the HP 2760p and the Fujitsu T901 have AFFS screens (at least as an option), which should offer viewing angles comparable to IPS screens. Colour accuracy is of course a different issue, but that's much less of a priority on tablets than workstations anyway.

    Oh, how i loved the 15" 1920x1200 matte screen on my retired HP Compaq nw8440.
    Im no professional user but i like having high resolution screens even if it hurts gaming performance.

    So yes, i would in fact blast off extra cash if i could get a high end notebook with 16:10 screen.

    You'll stop hearing it when people stop playing games that work better with 16:10.
