Actually that extra 1" in diagonal size is worth almost 12 sq. in. (~71.17sq. in. vs. 59.76sq. in) in screen area when compared to a current 10.1" 16:10 format display. Math might be off, this is a best guess on a fast mental calc with the odd rounding error. However the point is for these devices small increments in diagonal measurement can mean rather significant changes in dimension and screen real estate.

FYI the approximate diagonal of a typical 8-1/2"x11" sheet of paper is 14". I don't remember if I subtracted for the page margin or not, haven't calc'd that is a long time. But to replicate a sheet of paper that is what size screen we need, approximately in, as I recall, 16:10 format. Mind is old and slow these days so run the calcs to confirm but I think it gets the idea across.
