...the step up from a standart 4:3 19" 1280x1024 to a 16:9 1920x1080 is actually a step down in real screen size (vertically). The step to 16:10 1920x1200 is visible, and the 176 more pixels stows a taskbar easily. 16:9 is just the industry selling you TV-panels as a monitor, when working it's vertical size that counts as well. I've drawn it up for the popular formats, if someone tells me how to put an image (60kb) here as I don't have webspace to link from. Anyone checked the Samsung 2443BW or the LG W2452TX?
