I don't know why all laptop manufacturers now offer only widescreen models, but I don't find them practical at all if you use your laptop for business needs. Anyway, I am in search for a new laptop to replace my HP NC4000, and the only 12-inch non-widescreeb models that I can find on the market are X series from Lenovo. Am I overlooking something or is Lenovo really the only company left that offers 12-inch non-widescreen laptops?

Philips? I didn't find any information about laptops on their web site. I would appreciate a link if you have one.

In any case, what about the main players on the laptop market? Toshiba, HP, Sony etc. None of them make 12- or 13-inch non-widescreen laptops?

for business my dad uses a nice IBM business laptop, have just done a quick search for it but couln't find it.

but however IBM are ,in my opinion, a very good reliable and durable brand

just type this into product finding websites look for the think pads, they're good

there's my two-cents

You will not find a new nonwidescreen laptop, unless it's refurbished (but it'd have to be a fairly old refurb).
To be honest, widescreen is easy to get used to, and once you do get used to it, you won't want to try the 4:3 ratio screens any more.
