Forget all the other stuff, and bring back the 4:3 aspect ratio screen!!! The current screens aren't really wide, they are just shortened. They are definitely NOT better! This whole "wide screen" crap got foisted off on us because manufacturers found out that by making the screens shorter, they are cheaper to make. Then the marketing f**ks managed to convince some folks that "wider" (actually shorter) is better so that they could raise prices for what is actually an inferior and cheaper product, increasing profits at the expense of those buying computers.
Years of research went into finding the most comfortable aspect ratio for TV viewing, which turned out to be 4:3. The same applies to computer monitors. 4:3 is the best aspect ratio. Don't believe me? Then do some research and you will find that there are many that want to see the return of the 4:3 aspect ratio computer screen both on the desktop and laptop computer platforms.
I'd settle for a 16:10 ratio for a computer monitor, comfortable or not.
