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).
(*)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.
