Just as SEMC pointed out, none are SXGA. All are SXGA+, even if it isn't clearly stated.
The page http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_a...ga/page_id=13/
contains a list of notebooks that are listed
as SXGA. They aren't, though. I have randomly checked a few that stated "SXGA" and yet their actual resolution is 1400x1050. Check for yourself.
If you have time to lose, find me a notebook that states in the specifications "SXGA: 1280x1024". I can bet all I want that you won't find one.
There is no
notebook with a SXGA resolution apart the Acer. Just take my word for it. I have been searching a laptop for 2 months with an SXGA screen before I found the Sager 8890 that is now discontinued. This is because manufacturers stopped doing it - simply because wide-screen is more profitable. Acer's work around was to put a "desktop LCD", thus the 17" size.
For your information, since I had no other choice
, I decided to go for a nc8000 with a 15" SXGA+ screen. I will receive my notebook soon, so I will share my impressions on this forum
, but I took SXGA+ because there was nothing else.
And it wasn't really easy to find this one, since most high-performance Centrino notebooks are wide-screen
. This is a typical case where marketing is "creating" a new standard: no one asked for wide-screen, yet eventually it's going to be standard because there will be no other choice.
