This might have been obvious to a lot of folks already but having a 3:2 aspect ratio actually makes the SB have significantly more screen real estate than the competition. Although I can whip out my geometry equations from high school, I found this website helpful to figure out the screen dimensions: Screen Dimensions Calculator v2 Almost all 14" Windows laptops have a 16:9 aspect ratio (like Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga). Using the calculator the SB's 13.5" screen has a surface area of 84.1 sqin whereas the standard 14" Windows laptop has a surface area of 83.8 sqin. Therefore you are actually getting more screen space on the 13.5" SB than other 14" laptops! That's one of the reasons I'm seriously considering the SB over the PC competition. For example although the Dell XPS 13 is really cool, due to the screen aspect ratio, the screen surface area is only 75.5 sqin. So you are getting a lot less screen real estate for only being 0.2" smaller.
