Higher backlight level requirements leading to lower battery life. Opps, wait... I may have misunderstood the question. In fairness, if you and your spouse want to both watch movies on it, the larger viewing angle could be nice.

If the battery life Apple quotes is close to true, I'll be very impressed, and hope that whatever non-screen related saving they reaped are also reaped by someone later who provides a more battery-friendly screen technology.
