I forgot I wanted this!
It's been about 5 years since 16:9 screens (AKA: HDTV like panels) became the most common and affordable option available to us and I forogt I even wanted a 16:10 aspect ratio screen! I lucked out and obtained a 24 inch 1920x1200 LCD panel for my desktop about 5 years ago and it works great. The great thing about 16:10 is that it gives some more screen realestate up and down which alllows for two side-by-side 8.5x11inch papers to be viewed digitally quite effectively; whereas with 16:9 ratio screens would not do this without wasting more screen realestate, 16:9 is great for most HD movies but not the best for document work.
I'd welcome this retro Thinkpad, I love Thinkpads and I'd embrace a Thinkpad with today's technology but with a design and implementation that emobdies the best of new and old. I'd especially like an old style keyboard, rather than the chicklet style keyboards we are all becoming forcibly accustomed to.
