Modern 21:9 and 4:3 laptops

#1 Post by Screamer » Thu Oct 01, 2020 12:42 pm

Is 16:9 not sufficiently wide? Is 16:10 not sufficiently tall? Do you dislike these aspect ratios and would like to obtain such machines with the aforementioned aspect ratios, no matter the cost?

21:9
21.0" Acer Predator 21X (International)
14.4" Toshiba Satellite U840W (EU) or U845W (US) or dynabook Satellite R542 (JP)

4:3
19.0" GRiDCASE 1595 (International)
15.0" Roda/Amrel Rocky RK12 (International)
13.3" Getac B300 G7 (International)
12.1" Getac V200 G2 (International)
10.4" Getac V100 G4 (International)

Good luck finding or even getting them at a reasonable cost, most are too expensive to justify buying.

Seems like these are of the rugged notebook variety, which certainly costs a lot upfront for a new one. But the used market in a few years can be quite lucrative.
