Sure, it's a high resolution display, but this is a move that has nothing to do with 16:9 being better than 16:10, it's all about the panel makers beeing penny pinchers. They can cut more 16:9 panels out of a substrate than 16:10 panels and the only loser is the consumers that are being forced to use a display format no-one has asked for.
I'll be getting a 24in 16:10 panel before they go out of fashion, 16:9 is great for a TV, as it doesn't really matter too much in that case, but when you work on a PC, you want more space on the desktop, not less.
at 24 inches, wouldn't this have the same height as say, a 21" 16:10? I think there's enough room. On top of that, wider angles means better gameplay in first person shooters like cod4 or css (for me anyway lol)
