Screen Sizes

It is almost impossible nowadays to get a 16:10 1280x800 screen on a laptop but they are common on tablets.
On laptops almost all screens are the 16:9 1366x768 which is a pain for programming/text editing  tasks.
I wonder why all the producers think that the laptops are just mouse driven jukeboxes. They are business machines and at least the business series/ultrabooks should have been designed as such. Unfortunately none of the ultrabooks or laptops I have checked have 16:10 screens anymore (HP Folio, Lenovo U300s/U310, Asus X36/UX31).
It seems that the last 16:10 display is on the MacBook. I am wondering why?
