Default Super Laptops. 18.5"

Anyone knows of any other bands still making 18.5" laptops besides Alienware?

My Acer 8930g is getting on and I need as much screen as I can get.

Thanks.

The Acer Aspire AS8943G-6190 has a 18.4" screen, if you can find one.

Yha Acer stopped making 18.4" screens, The last model was a 8951 2nd gen i7..

17.3 is big, but I sometime have to work in bed and I can fill my 2 24" desktop screens..

Plus gamings funner... Which the crappiware having sli 765s would work perfectly.

I think Toshiba still makes some Qosmio's that are 18.4".

Edit:
Oh wait, I think they may have stopped production on those back in 2009. My bad.
