I'll believe that 16:10 is the best aspect ratio when all the content viewed on it becomes 16:10.

For the useful lifespan of this laptop and beyond, you're going to have two little black bars at the top and bottom of your screen a lot of the time, and being IPS that's where any light-leakage, corner-glow, and uniformity issues are most visible.

16:9 is not the best aspect ratio for productivity but when I'm working on a laptop what I usuallly want is a wider screen, not a taller screen - because I'm not a single-tasking luddite, I have two applications side by side and a 2:1 panel would probably be ideal. 16:9 isn't 2:1 but it at least works pretty damn well.

16:9 video viewed at 16:10 ratio looks natural to all but the fussiest videophile. For Microsoft Office applications, I much prefer 16:10. Side by side works well on a 32 inch 4K monitor like the one I am typing this post on, not so much on 13 or 16 inches.

Each to their own, but there are multiple reasons why 16:9 is the overwhelmingly-dominant standard. Cost, content, and compatibility being the top three of a very long list.

Personally I think 16:10 laptops are a more logical choice for small laptops as the taller screen means a deeper laptop, which can use the extra space for longer palm rest and bigger trackpad. Only valid if the manufacturer doesn't needlessly squander that extra real estate, of course.

This looks quite good except for that duplicate backslash key they crammed into the right control key, it should've been the menu key instead.

Also 2K is a bit too much at 16 inches. I'm fine with 1920x1200 or even 1680x1050 as long as it's still 16:10.
