Because the physical dimensions of the screens are different, with the 16:10 monitor being slightly narrower and taller. Both will still be 20" on the diagonal but the overall size is different. So running a native 1680x1050 at 1600x900 will be stretched whenrun full screen, the extra pixels have to come from somewhere.
Unless you plan on running the monitors in clone mode, I wouldn't worry about the difference in resolution as it won't matter in extended mode.
