    I went into Frys and Best Buy, and I looked at several places online. Nothing yet.

    Newegg and Tiger Direct have a few refurbished machines. Is anyone making new machines with 15", 4:3 Display?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Well, you could get some factory-refurbished systems from Dell, such as their D630 systems (I have one that works great after 4 years). Also, if you need a Linux-certified system, check out ZaReason, Inc. who provides a number of Linux systems (laptops, desktops, workstations, servers). As mentioned, and noted, most current systems are using a wide-screen display, but you can get many with enough resolution to do 4:3 just fine. So, if you get one that does 1920x1080 or 1920x1200, then a 4:3 output on those will be VERY viewable!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    you can still find 4:3 T60p's laptops from IBM/lenovo and a couple of Dell's (e.g., through amazon and thinkpaddepot dot com ).

    they are still very fast even now in 2013 when using linux.

    cheers
