Hello. why do people ask questions like this? yesterday some db at staples was trying to convince me that 1920x1080 was "better" than 1920x1200. Yeah, if all I did was watch db movies, sure, db. He was blaming my choice of software instead. stupid salestard.
regardless of one's vision, higher resolution is -- you guessed it! -- higher resolution. we have 15" 1920x1200 laptops at work and they're fine to work on.
unf. in this day of walmartian excess, all the LCD screens have gone 16x9. as one dellite said the other day, "All our laptops are HD now, with high resolution!"
not the planet i picked, awaiting departure
P.S.: Appropriately, Kontera has picked up on the only two things that really matter, right?
