Well hello Mr Fancypants, with your fancy office and free-standing desk and laptop and macbook...

Some of us have to get by with tiny cube-farm desks.

I do have a (non-work) macbook though. Now I have all three operating systems; a Linux server, a Windows desktop, and a Mac laptop :P

You should cut those orange wires behind you....you look too well rested Gabe . Make work projects I say!

Sometimes I miss it....I've fallen out of step and don't know technology anymore...oh well . Good to see the Social media team in action! 2 screens for the price of 1 employee....although the poor employee in the background of TSI Keith's picture has a square monitor while a nice widescreen is right next to them unused...

That is unless that employee likes their standard lcd...

I'm not even a director at my own workplace and I also have my own office as done everyone else along with a personal MacBook Pro Retina, although it's a historical company thing.

Oh and a big lab with a ton of servers.

Absolument !

16x9 screens are the nothing more or less than the fruition of yet another rape of the public's common sense by large corporations dictating to us what to buy, in order to cut their manufacturing costs by misrepresenting the REAL size of the product by selling it based on its diagonal measurement.

Who the HELL needs a wide screen on a computer ???!!! (except possibly a few accountants who use spreadsheets)

Widescreens on a PC are PC (PURE CRAP).

Sorry, but them's the facts.

I disagree. I'd choose 16:9 any day. having to scroll left to right when multitasking is such a waste of time.

And making the font smaller just so it fits in the screen is not worth me squinting to read what's 24" from my face.

Just sayin'

Said by someone who uses multiple monitors anyway....

BTW, I use ALT-TAB for that.

(with nice big fonts, and a 19" 4x3 screen about 30" from my face, set at 1280x1024 res)

exactly, why would I want to fit the window from one screen onto the other... may as well add a 3 screen in the middle so I can put both windows from both sides stretched appropriately

ATL+TAB wouldn't get rid of the scrolling... just the switching from one window to the other.

YOU WILL NOT PASS... I mean, WILL NOT CONVINCE ME

As a software developer, I'd take a 16:9 display any day. I've got a pair of 1280x1024 displays at work and they're just not wide enough to display decent width lines of code.

You got to have my screens. Working as a Designer/Photo.

Duo 2560 x 1440p

1x Apple Cinema Display
1x Crossover 27Q LED-P ($350 CAD) (Same screen as Apple SO CHEAP!)

You can get Catleap, Crossover and other brand from Korea. Shipping is 2 days for me to Montreal.

My own review on those monitors:

Enjoy !

OK, so youse guys were quick to point out a few more exceptions than I did initially, but but about the average 'Joe Six-Pack', who cannot even figure out how to deliberately and consciously RUN two programs at the same time ?

For the vast majority of users, in reality the need is for a PORTRAIT oriented screen, not a landscape one of WHATEVER proportion !

After all, how many web pages are wider than they are tall ?

And how many word processor documents ?

As I posted earlier, the industry has screwed the silent majority, the sheeple, the typical user - call this group what you will - just for the sake of saving about 15% of the pixels and marketing a 16x9 screen to SEEM to be the same as a 4x3 one of the same diagonal dimension when in truth it is not, and when these ordinary folks get their new computer home, they are more concerned with getting it to run at all, rather than understanding the relative merits of various screen geometries, and by the time they figure out that their OLD monitor suited them better, it's long gone.

Personally I favor 16:10, as I find 16:9 too cramped for what I most frequently do (scroll down a page of text). Our accounting software at work is a PITA when used on a 16:9 screen, unless you have a pretty big one.

Sadly, very few monitors support 16:10 these days

16:9 is stupid for computer monitors, unless its a relatively large one like RMerlin mentioned...

I love my Dell 30" 2560x1600 16:10 monitor.
