    For the money, WQHD monitors are still a pretty good deal.

    It wasn't that rare; quite a few of the last generation of 4x3 laptops came with it; I have Thinkpad T43 that sports that resolution, along with a somewhat older Dell D600. I really miss those screens, as they gave you a lot more room to play with than 1024x786 without making the pixels *too* small, which was an issue with 1600x1200 panels smaller than 15".

    1600x1050 showed up in some of the earlier widescreen laptops, mostly 17" ones. (The last 17" G4 Powerbooks and early 17" MacBook Pros, for instance.) Seems like it's pretty much extinct in that niche.

    Always wondered who came up with all these resolution acronyms past "SVGA". Wikipedia has an entire page devoted to that alphabet salad, but I can't see myself memorizing "WHUXGA", "WOOGABOOGA" and all the rest.

    The last generation imac g4 20" also use that 1680x1050 resolution.
