The new dell i8500 is wide format 19xx X 14xx or some such huge number,
don't remember off hand.  Viewable angles on this one of mine approach
CRT angles.  I spent enough money (well, school loan, but I will be
spending it when I get done) on this laptop to have but a nice
powerbook, but the screen resolutions just don't cut it.  I am a lots of
windows guy, and I even run windowmaker to get back the space other WMs
lose to taskbars.
