    Wouldn't 15.6" at 16:9 have less actual area than 15.4" at 4:3?

    I know the point is to make it like high definition format and stuff, but still, it'd be nice if they'd try to make it almost the same area.

    Thats a bad idea imo. 16 by 9 is great for movies, but dude, we are talking about a laptop here. they are supposed to be for work. 16 by 10 is already pretty harsh with word documents which would work well in 10 by 16 mind you, but 16 by 9?
