in this artical the writer says that it feels like your working on a 17 notebook because of the glass and the bright LED, and he hit it right on the mark. It really feels bigger than it is.

I agree with this. I actually used to have a Dell 1705 (which was clearly bigger) but the Macbook screen just feels HUGE. Not quite as big as a 17, but bigger than a 15.4. It's a weird optical illusion.

I came from an Dell E1705 as well and, side by side, I agree that the new MBP doesn't look like a 15.4 in comparison. The MBP, however is much thinner. No optical illusions there.

Maybe the case design was meant for 16:9 ratio but Apple changed it to 16:10 ratio at the last minute because they figured a lot of people will dislike 16:9 ratio.
