Shopping for a laptop: a rant

I'm getting the notion that I want to replace my laptop; the keyboard is getting intermittently flaky, and the screen resolution just isn't sufficient.

So I'm looking at various websites, many of which have comparisons and recommendations. That's all well and good, but none of them seems to tell me what I want to know. They'll give me the screen size in inches, but not the resolution.

I DON'T FUCKING CARE IF THE SCREEN IS 15.2" OR 16"... I WANT TO KNOW HOW MANY PIXELS IT HAS! Can't you please let me search for something with 1600x1200 resolution, rather than making me pick some stupid size in inches and then go hunting through the specs of every single machine?

These sites must all be designed by men. They don't really care how useful it is, just how many inches it has.

And if anyone has a recommendation for a lightweight non-Sony laptop that runs Windows (sadly, I gotta) and has a high-resolution screen, please let me know.
