WSXGA+ 17-inch PowerBook vs. WXGA+ 17-inch PowerBook

new PowerBook screen

Ok, so it's just three pics, only two of which are actually side-by-side, but has some snaps one of those new higher-resolution, 1680 x 1050 pixel 17-inch PowerBooks alongside an older 1440 x 900 pixel model. The screen is definitely crisper and brighter, but we've got one question: What in the hell took them so long? Other manufacturers have been offering laptops with WSXGA+ displays for ages now.
