Default New Acer Laptop to be Slim and Trim

"A newfangled LG display, dubbed Shuriken, is apparently being recruited in Acer's fight against irrelevance. The Taiwanese company will reputedly use it in an upcoming 14.1-inch laptop, but here's the kicker: the physical size of the laptop will be no bigger than that of a 13.3-inch model."

Slim is in!  Thinner and thinner displays are becoming available and some feature thinner bezels.  Forget a frame for your display.  You will soon be able to see things almost to the very edge.  Smaller is good, and with less of a bezel, the computing experience should be a little less distracting, especially for watcihng movies.  I do wonder and worry that a smaller bezel will make the display more sensitive to flex.  While I treat my electronic gadgets with care, sometimes you just forget that your notebook is on the couch, or maybe you have fallen asleep computing and rolled over.  Going back, does anyone remember the days when laptop displays were so heavy that if you tilted them back too far ,the whole laptop fell over?
