80 Character Displays

From the Python styleguide:

There are still many devices around that are limited to 80 character lines

I tend to stick with this limit. But what kind of device is still limited to 80 character lines? All of my computers have at least 1024 pixel wide displays, including my netbook. My Amiga has a wider display. My phone has a wider display. Who the hell is still using these ancient computers?

To answer my own question: Me. Specifically, me when I’m coding on a netbook. Other than me, it seems that braille displays can be 80 characters wide.
