I want to buy a laptop in the near future. Maybe in next 3 or 4 weeks. By window shopping in best buy and circuit city, I found out that there are more wide screen laptops on display than the regular ones. I am not sure I like these widescreens.
First of all I, like most of us, am used to the regular "square" screens for too many years. I use 17 inch CRT monitor at home and at work, and like the 1024x768 native resolution. The widescreen laptop at the stores had 1280x800 native resolution, which looked kind of odd to me. It made the text look smaller on the screen and my guess is that my eyes would hurt a little bit if I were to use the widescreen.
Not sure I would buy the widescreen laptop yet.
