Screen resolutions (aspect ratios)

The aspect ratio of the MS Surface is 16:9 in contrast with the iPad 4:3 aspect ratio. The 16:9 aspect ratio is the universal ratio for high definition television (HDTV), non-HD digital television and analog widescreen television PALplus. The 16:9 is close to the golden ratio of 16:10 - leading to a pleasing multimedia viewing experience.

I look forward to putting my iPad next to the MS Surface, putting netflix on, and comparing the view.
