laptop wide screen aspect ratios

  bitstream 10:25 19 Aug 2004

I need to buy a laptop that will be used to play DVDs and type extensive Word documents. A wide screen laptop would do the trick, but is it possible to change the aspect ratio and work on Word documents in normal size or will I have to put up with them in a 'squashed'aspect ratio?

I'm pretty sure it's possible. The only requirement is your display card/onboard display supports the usual 4 by 3 display (such as 1028x768), which it must do. Just double check what resolutions the laptop supports.
