The screen on the air looks disappointingly vertically challenged. So disappointing this 16:10 and now 16:9 is. Makes no sense whatsoever to stretch the screen so much, ok movies, and blah blah, but ultimately it's a moronic industry standard that apple has had to adopt to their detriment I think, and it couldn't be more evident than here on a 11.6 screen. All that pointless loss of space on the left and right, absolutely pointless in almost everything but the odd tv show or movie one might watch (and if they ever do). It's such a thing of beauty this new air yet it's marred by adopting widescreen tv aspects on a 11.6" screen. Apple had the foresight and guts to use the proper aspect ratio on the ipad, why not then on the air???????????? I am almost certainly going ahead and buying the 11.6" anyway but I can't be happy about this choice.
