The point is: Alternative 1: You get 16:10 with a top bezel of 6mm. Alternative 2: You get 16:10, as well as 73 pixels on top of it for the top menu, everywhere except the notch. Top bezel is 3.5mm everywhere, and 6mm where the notch is. The notch might not look great, but you're not losing anything. You're gaining extra screen real estate. Just buy XPS then? Top bezel is 5.5mm-7mm across the XPS line though, compared to MBP's 3.5mm.
