    I'm having a math fail :(. Can someone please tell me the pixel density (ppi or dpi) on the new 11.6" and 13" MacBook Air's?

    Stick this into spotlight

    Code:
    sqrt(1366^2 + 768^2)/11.6
    sqrt(1440^2 + 900^2)/13.3

    So the 11.6" has a higher pixel density and has a 16x9 screen ratio (as opposed to the 13" 16x10 ratio). Interesting...

    Keep in mind that the 11" screen has a useless amount of vertical pixels. Forum browsing and document creation is severely hampered. Same idea with iLife. That's why Apple bumped the resolution of the 13" MBA.

    Not so severely compared to the 13" macbooks/pros - 768 vs 800 pixels, just 32 in difference.

    Dont' be naive, the 11in macbook air has 768px, which is 96% the current 13" macbook and macbook pros. This amount is fine especially for browsing and document creation.
