    Term: real estate

    Your definition or explanation: In engineering, any space that is limited, e.g. within a computer screen, web browser window or keyboard, or relative to the device size as a whole.

    Example: "One would think that given the prime screen real estate that desktop icons occupy...", "screen real estate", "desktop real estate", "browser real estate", "keyboard real estate", "device real estate", etc.

    One or more places you have seen the term:, or search for the terms listed under "Example", as their use outside of the traditional real estate business is increasing.

    Have you looked for this term or meaning in dictionaries, and not found it? Yes X (found it, but this is a proposal for an alternate meaning of an existing term, not for a new term)
