With panel makers pushing 16:9 ratio panels in 2008, Acer has decided to open up all its notebook product lines to be based on the ratio, while other notebook vendors are readying to push at least 14" and 15.6" lines in the third quarter this year. Notebook makers predict the proportion of 16:9 models will increase 10% per quarter during in the second half of 2008.

    Shouldn't it be 16:10? 1920x1200 and such?

    Yeah, 16:9 is an HDTV format, 16:10 is the computer format, but perhaps that's the point? They want people to watch movies on them I guess. Just don't try to play a game designed for 16:10.

    I wonder how long it'll take EA to support the new format.

    I haven't seen a 4:3 screen in a while...I was under the impression this was already really accepted as standard.

    "I haven't seen a 4:3 screen in a while...I was under the impression this was already really accepted as standard."

    the standard for pc screens is 16:10. 16:9 is what hdtv's are.
