"...small vertical resolution "
Which reminds me - why is it so hard to get a decent 16:10 monitor these days? I have a 7 year old 24" HP on my Win7 machine but I'd like a newer one, preferably 27", for a new box and can't find one.
Also, my 8 year old iMac is 16:10 but the new ones are 16:9, so no deal!
What foolishness is this? Do screen makers think all we do is watch movies?
