Comment 16:10 fan, for actual work (Score 2) 333

For actual work I like 16:10, preferably at a resolution of 1920 x 1200 or greater and on a 24" display. I find 1080p is really annoying for work, and I haven't updated my monitor for YEARS as a result. I do a lot of "CAD stuff". My personal preferences always seem to be in the minority. Why can't I just be normal?

Comment One that I can do serious work on (Score 1) 591

I want a laptop with a 24" screen with resolution of 1920 x 1200 (NOT 1920 x 1080) The 24" screen is going to make it a very large laptop. So be it. Also, I want the keyboard to be as close to the user as possible. And no built in mouse pad. I will always use a wireless mouse. Why is what I want never available? I must be a freak?

I guess this is something that has probably been said a thousand times before, but, If pirating stopped overnight, then surely open source would become the standard within months? There's no way that pirates would suddenly start paying for software. And I mean NO WAY! In a way, pirating is doing corporations a massive favour by indirectly stifling open source, yes? Anyway, I love reading threads about this kind of topic, so I thought I should start to contribute :-)
