Please do reconsider this. There's no product in the market at the 
moment to match the wonderful large screens that you used to make.

I'm typing this on a much upgraded(*) T60p with the best screen 
Lenovo/IBM ever made: 15" at 2048x1536. I'd love a new laptop, and the 
first company to make a machine with a decent screen + keyboard + 
trackpoint will get an expensive order from me!

Vertical resolution is critically important for work, whereas many of us 
will never play a movie on the widescreen laptop. There are a lot of 
people who find shortscreens ugly and frustrating (especially Windows 
users who don't know how to reclaim space from the window manager).

Best wishes,


(*)So far: 1 new screen, 3 disks, 2 keyboards, 3 batteries, wifi, new 
cpu, RAM, new fan. If it weighed less, and the fan were silent, and 
could take more than 3.2GB of RAM, I'd probably keep it another 7 years.
