    Sorry if this isn't exactly on topic but it's the only PC group I
    subscribe to.

    Anyone got a widescreen notebook?

    I'm curious to know how they deal with games of set resolutions. Say you
    set a game's config to be 1024 x 768 does the display stretch the image
    across the screen like a WS TV set to 16:9, or does it leave black bars
    to the left and right of the the picture, like a WS TV set to 4:3?

    Hope that all makes sense. I'm about to buy a laptop and I'm not sure
    either way about getting one with a widescreen display.

    Regards

    Cheers. Don't suppose they go in for non-linear stretches?
