Reduce Screen Bezel Size
Over the past fiver years, laptop screen bezels have increased in size from only about a quarter of an inch to around an inch now. All this wasted bezel space could have been used to make a bigger screen. I can probably put a 15" screen in a 14.1" laptop chasis. And even probably a 17" screen in a 15.6" laptop chasis. Reduce the screen bezel size, a large bezel is a backward step in technology.
Just compare the C840 (really old laptop):
With the latest Latitude E-series:
I'm sorry but the latest Latitude series has the largest and ugliest screen bezel ever. Shrink the bezel size please. Look at the latest of what Acer is planning to use: http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/25/acer-said-to-be-using-lg-shuriken-display-in-upcoming-laptop/ They will be using a LG Shurikan display to reduce bezel down to only 8mm as well as thickness down to 4mm. Follow suit Dell. I want to see laptops with smaller screen bezel.
