It wouldn't distort the image, there would not be much vertical space since it's only 900px tall. Cutting 124px off of the 1280x1024 screen I'm using now at work would mean lots of scrolling to read web pages, documents, and viewing photos. It doesn't look like it's set up to rotate either. Clearly this is something you'd buy and sacrifice usability for the sake of gaming bliss.

Get two and stack them on top of each other :P

If this were as thin as regular LCD's, it'd be the sexiest thing ever.

Too big though, they need to make an LCD version that is as thin. Then I think they will fly off the shelves. At this size though they may break the shelves. How heavy is it?
