    16:10 really? So watching any content it will display two black bars, not great!

    For multimedia, yeah, small bother.
    But for office work , programming or anything related to vertical estate, it is the right trend.
    How many times I rotated my screen to see more on the vertical..

    I love 16:10, but we would need also 27 - 2560x1600 monitors, for easily moving windows in multimon setups..

    My wife has one (version 2018) and she loves it. It is very light, thin, fast, has a good screen and looks good.

    That's awesome, I hope these panels are made available to other vendors too. I'd love to see more 16:10 options on the market.

    I had a 16:10 laptop for years and loved it for that screen, all the more recent 16:9 ratio laptops I've owned have felt squished by comparison. Trust me, it's one of those things that you don't realize you NEED until you start using it - better for work, better for web browsing, better for gaming (arguably).

    Considering that in past you had few cm of plastic/metal around screen you saw whole time, and now it is in millimeters, ... I think it is fine.
    Especially for productivity. I use vertical system bars on Windows/Linux for this very reason. We have lot of horizontal space, but productivity needs more vertical space.

    The point of these 8:5 laptop screens seems to be to take up vertical space that would otherwise be wasted anyway considering they want it to be longer in that direction for they keyboard + much larger trackpad layout. With the traditional 16:9 aspect it doesn't leave much room for a decent trackpad. At least that's how it seems from my observations. I don't know for a fact why they're doing it.

    Make it square: 1:1
    I'm tired of having two remember two numbers when talking about pixels... :rolleyes:

    Oh, and it should be a nice round binary number, like 2048 x 2048, none of this 1440p ridiculousness !

    :D

    As someone who switched from a Surface back to a laptop with a 16:9 I can tell you the extra real estate is sorely missed...
    Would you rather a chonky bezel below the screen or some pixels that are black in colour for watching your movie?
    16:10 or 3:2 should be the norm for laptops, that extra real estate comes in handy for everyday use.

    16:10 is so superior to 16:9 it's not even funny. "Black bars" who cares, it's a productivity device. That you have more vertical screenspace is far more important. Why 16:9 became a standard instead of 16:10, or even taller, I will never understand.
    16:10 coming back in the monitor space is a godsend.
