Believe it or not, just today the first 16:9 Dell laptop
appeared in our office.

The reason 16:9 matters, of course, is that no
self-respecting videophile of the near future would
be caught dead inviting friends over to see a 4:3 display.
This is becoming, if nothing else, a fashion statement.
Since thin screen sets do not incur a cost premium to
be built in wide aspect ratio, and HDTV is wide screen,
and DVDs are in the vast majority wide screen too, that's
the wave of the future.
