Me being horrified by apple going 16:9 made me decide to prove it to myself, especially since by looking at the speaker grill on the new pic vs the old macbook pro...it looks the same size. With other arguments I have seen they have mistaken the 15.4 inch screen to be horizontal rather than diagonal. This also requires more complicated math that people always seem to ef up. For this I have just decided to do without bezel and screen sizes and go with the bottom casing. Width of 16x9 16" vaio: 15.1 http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs...Id=8198552921644570896&parentCategoryId=16154 Width of 15.4" MBP: 14.1 Width of 17" MBP: 15.4 http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs.html Okay, so we've established widths of laptop screen sizes. And for those sticklers out there, the bezels around the screen seem very similar in width. Next we take a look at the air keyboard. Now this is assuming that the "spy pic" is using the exact same keyboard specs so apple can save money on manufacturing. Using this pic: There are 670 pixels for the width of the entire bottom which is supposedly 12.8 inches according to Apple. http://www.apple.com/macbookair/specs.html 670/12.8 = 52.34 pixels/inch Tab key = 54 pixels or 1.03 inches. Keyboard width = 594 pixels or 11.35 inches. Now looking at his picture it's safe to assume that there is room for at least 1.5-1.75 "tab key lengths" from the indent of the keyboard to the edge of the casing. We'll go with both to make a case. 1.5 x 1.03 = 1.55 inches. 1.55 x 2 + 11.35 = 14.45 1.75 x 1.03 = 1.8 inches on either side of the keyboard. 1.8 x 2 + 11.35 = 14.95 So assuming that 14.45 inches is nowhere near any laptop dimensions out there right now and 14.95 is...if this shot is real then we're getting a stupid 16x9 laptop. Basically I just proved what I was trying to disprove ><. Now I'm going to have to sell my Timbuk2 bag so I can fit this stupid freakin laptop, I seriously hate apple for this. I've asked this guy to try and get the length from the indent to the edge of the casing but this seems pretty close enough. And just to throw something out there...there is no saying apple won't put silver chiclet keys into the MBP, there's white in the macbook, maybe they won't have the lines be completely uniform so there is at least some way to tell them apart. The biggest argument I Have seen against the 16x9 so far is that they may not have LED backlit screens for that res yet, if this is true then I agree that apple may not be willing to ditch the power savings or uniform brightness for this res.
