ASUS 16-9 Notebooks July

ASUS is next up to offer an ultra-wide screen in its notebooks, according to a claim stemming from the LCD industry. The company is reportedly adding portables with 15.6-inch displays with a 16:9 wide aspect ratio as early as July. Most details are unavailable, though the system is said to be launching first the US followed by a European model. It's unclear whether this would replace any existing 15.4-inch, 16:10 notebooks.

The report also echoes claims that Acer, ASUS, Lenovo, and Sony will all have 14-inch notebooks at the same ratio, while Acer is also allegedly planning a 17.3-inch notebook that will launch in early 2009. The ratio is already used in the Acer Gemstone Blue line and is targeted at media notebooks, where 16:9 is considered ideal for watching HD movies as well as side-by-side applications.
