I searched and found no thread discussing the resolution ratio of 16:9 for MBP laptops, which is expected in the update. Here is my opinion about 16:9 My brother own iMac 27, which is 16:9, and I absolutely love it! Reasons why: -most of the movies are shot 23.5:10 (or 2.35:1) or rounded 24:10, and it is nice to have a bigger picture of the movie on a small laptop screen. A big plus for me. -Easier work with two programs on screen. When I write stuff, I usually have two windows open. In Final Draft, I have outline on the right side, and screenplay on the left. Or you can have Word on the left and Safari on the right. Final Cut is also nicer. Vertically divided screen does not work on the 16:10 that well, 16:9, however, does a good job on it. -Mac Doc as complained by many people takes up a chunk of a screen, especially on 16:9. I have never had my Doc on the bottom. It is always on the left side (hiding turned off). I never understood why people have it on the bottom, since even with 16:10 it takes up a lot of valuable space on a laptop screen. This problem is solvable and I think not a reason to not like 16:9 -some people say 16:9 on a laptop is nice because of TV using 16:9. Now what does have a screen of Macbook Pro have to do with TV? Really nothing. I think it is not the reason why it is good. I wanna hear your opinions.
