Why am I losing screen height on each new laptop?
My first hi-res laptop was a Dell I8000 which had a, huge at the time, resolution of 1600×1200. It was quite expensive because of this but also a wonderful and productive experience. My next laptop was also a Dell, a I8600, which had a “wide-screen”. This means it had a 1680×1050 resolution. The switch was not so heavy even if I lost 150px in one shot. Now as I am searching for a new laptop I seem to find only laptops with 1600×900 thus facing the option of losing 150px again. This is called HD and is should be a feature. If you need to read a A4 page in a pdf reader, or a normal web page in a browser or a long function body in eclipse you start to scroll often and often. Not to mention that there are more and more horizontals bars (menubars) which do not offer any option for vertical positioning.
