No doubt widescreen is superior for watching movies but for the way I use my laptop, 4:3 is superior. Internet, email, and word processing is all better with 4:3 on a laptop. I don't see a benefit for these applications in widescreen format until I get into 24 inch or great screens when it becomes possible to have two windows side-by-side on the screen. My 30 inch dell screen is great this way. but laptops?? So I don't get it. Why did apple (and most windows manufacturers) bail on 4:3 screens for laptops? Just because widescreen is sexier or looks cooler? Can someone educate me here?
