Sorry, no 16:9 displays for me.

HOWEVER, if you guys are looking for 16:10 monitors you better grab them up while you still can. Over the next 12 - 18 months you will see all major panel manufacturers transitioning to almost exclusively 16:9 units. There will still be certain high-end units sporting 16:10 but the vast majority will be 16:9.

This is due to substrate sizes which allow for quite a bit of loss when producing 16:10 panels. 16:9 means an LCD manufacturer can fit more panels on a single piece of substrate which in turn makes them more of a profit.

This. Already seen the shift in the laptop market over the last year and believe me it pisses me off. Time to stock up on 16:10s!

Am I the only folks here who don't make it a scene of 16:10 vs 16:9??? haha:P Dell will probably do like samsung and other and keep some new model in 16:10 for few years even with new panel and tech. No worrie about that.
