WideScreen Business Notebooks

Recently, e-week featured an article about widescreen business notebooks.
They state that “widescreen notebooks aren’t just for watching Lord of the Rings on DVD anymore, PC makers say.”

Businesses are beginning to request notebooks with widescreens, which are popular with consumers thanks to a greater 16:10 aspect ratio that allows them to display more information than a standard screen, kicking off a new trend that analysts say will help convert the notebook market almost completely to the more-rectangular displays over the next year or two.

Some notebook makers, responding to customers’ demands and also to falling widescreen panel prices, have already begun offering widescreen business machines.

About the advantages of a wide screen notebook (business notebook):
“Widescreen notebooks’ businesses productivity gains come from the ability to display multiple document pages side by side, which requires less scrolling, as well as the ability to run multiple applications and arrange their respective windows to be visible simultaneously.

While most notebook widescreen panels will come in sizes ranging from 10.6 inches to 17 inches, industry watchers appear to agree that 14-inch or 15.4-inch widescreen models will be the most popular, followed by 12-inch and 17-inch widescreens. ”

The article also talks about how different brands approach the widescreen business notebook product development.
