That screen ratio really is awful. 16:10 is usable. 16:9 is a little cramped when you want to full screen an app that has a lot of toolbars (like most web browsers and document editors). 16:7.68 though? Are ever-shorter screens considered progress?

The resolution seems a bit high for an 8" screen as well. I guess you can make your fonts huge, but then you have that screen height issue again. I'm all for lighter netbooks, but it has to be usable for tasks like programming (which I can comfortably do on a 10" eee). I can see this screen giving me massive eyestrain.
