Norbx Dell aparently didn't have any more I 8500 lemons to resend me so they sent me the I8600C with all the trimmings, maybe they felt bad selling a lemon to a returning customer. In 2000 I had bought a desk top and ended giving it to my out of work sister and brother in law, I told Dell at the time I'll wait for you to bring out a wide screen before purchasing another computer in lengh as this post is.
I am one of the people that were clamoring for a wide screen so I could have a Home Theater Personal Computer as talked about on the AVS forum. I started asking Dell to come out with a Notebook wide screen after telling them that handicapped users could benefit more by buying their wide screen Home Theater and Personal Computer in the same unit, they finally did what me and others asked for.
I told them I was *depressed* that other people had wide screens but my favorite company Dell did not! You mention how much more money can be made plausably, then Dell investigates the suggestion, finally realizing that more disabled users would benefit by buying a 2 for 1 Wide Screen DVD and computing could be had by the getting more disabled people to buy what Dell now has what both able and disabled people want for sale.
I used psychology to promote what I wanted to what a lot others would want to get Dell to be the computer of choice by offering both a 4:3 and a 16 X 10 in one computer. If while watching a wide screen movie you can set it to full frame AKA foolscreen by keying full screen, which would knock out the black bars changing the aspect ratio from wide screen to full frame if you wanted it that way. I know that when you turn out the lights like a real movie theater you don't see any black bars but you do see the movie in the OAR (Original Aspect Ratio). I was the one in my suggestion telling Dell how the wide screen aspect could be changed to the foolscreen no black bars wanted for those who thought Full Frame was showing the whole picture. My present to those of you that bought the wide screen from being told by Dell how you could get rid of the black bars
entirely if you wished to view the picture in the aspect of Pan and Scams 1.33:1 AKA Full Frame cutting the sides off the pic but still filling your screen like you wanted to watch on your NTSC 1940 voted 4:3, whci should have been changed in 1953 the same year as "The Robe" in Cinema scopes 2.55:1 the first wide screen anamorphic movie, for all that realize I am telling the truth your welcome.
All that think I am full of canal water you will learn the truth in coming years as 16 x 9 is the Digital Choice, if you own a W/S HDTV you can change the aspect by stretching the wide screen AR to 4:3 Full mode, it then fills your scream cutting off the sides. Foolscreen lovers there will be no black bars a 'natural' occurance in fitting a wider movie then the 1.78:1 HDTV envelope cutting off the sides of OAR.
