16:10 vs 16:9 Monitors
There was a news article on a 16:9 native laptop for "better movie viewing", but I don't see a corresponding thread.
I just wanted to make a comment that may prove useful for those considering one or the other.
16:9 is a "perfect" fit for HDtv and most movies.
However, in a transitional period such as now, 16:10 is better for watching a mix of the two.
4:3 material can stretch larger within the 16:10, producing smaller bars on the left and right, similar to the ones visible with 16:9 at the top and bottom.
So, with 16:10 you have less bars at the left/right with 4:3(narrower than if it were 16:9), but you also have bars on 16:9 along the top/bottom (quite narrow)
It's a "best of both worlds" situation, in essence.
