There are still laptops that offer not widescreen from manufacturing, you could call directly and order it.

Need vertical realstate and 4:3 for an app to look correct. I don't like this "widescreen" scam they are pulling over our eyes either. Don't others see what they are doing here? 17" widescreen... .great for marketing, but less realestate and cheaper to produce. I want my 4:30 back. They can go widescreen if they want, but the height had better be the same as a 17" 4:3 screen originally.
