I saw a thinkpad with a 1600x1200 about 5 years ago.  Now that was a

because they had a lot of difficulties getting those screens at the
time and they would rather sell something they had in stock.

Many atheros chips also aren't supported, or at least weren't last time
I tried to get one of those working.

are quite nice in general though.
