If you were about to receive (not ordered yet) a monitor to replace a dying
and the offering was 1680x1050 LCD, would you make a fuss and hold out for

I'm sure they'll be pleased if you made a fuss. The monitor you're getting is the 20 inch widescreen. A 1600x1200 monitor would be a 4:3 aspect ratio 20 inch LCD -- it's a smaller and cheaper monitor.

LCD resolution refers to the actual number of native pixels on the screen. You should run it at its native resolution. If you run a 1680x1050 LCD at 1600x1200, you'll get stretched out pixels. That would be bad.

Get the widescreen and just run it they way its supposed to be run. It's a terrific monitor. The really nice thing about the widescreen LCDs is that you can put two pages up side by side.
