“Widescreen laptops are dumb”

Vlad Savov, writing for The Verge on laptops and aspect ratio:

“But a laptop is more than just a video playback machine. For myself and millions of others, itโ€™s the primary tool for earning a living. We use these machines to read, write, remember, create, connect, and communicate. And in most of these other applications, a 16:9 screen of 13 to 15 inches in size just feels like a poor fit.”

As a guy who among other laptops uses an ancient IBM ThinkPad X60s from time to time and does not own a single 16:9 laptop despite market realities, I obviously wholeheartedly agree.
