Last night in a computer store with the midnight sale of Windows 7, I see many netbooks, all are 1024 x 600 resolution.
Then when the CPU meter and the Clock gadget were added, the CPU meter looked spherical, but the clock (the second clock -- the silver one) looked somewhat oval.
Later on I went to all the desktops and both the CPU meter and the clock were spherical.
So do the netbook have this "aspect ratio" problem? It is not a big deal but it'd be nice to know if I get a netbook and know that it is common on the netbook. (and aware that the picture and photos will be slightly distorted).
All the netbooks were at 1024 x 600, which was their "native" resolution. Every single one of the netbooks showed an oval shaped clock. None of the desktop had that issue.
