15.6" vs 17.3" - Page 2

post #11 of 17
15" here on a lenovo, 1600x900.. Quite good, 1 year old. I don't think 1080p would be too small.

I cringe when I see 17'' and 19'' laptops. I just don't get it... Especially the really powerful ones that are like 2 inches thick and have a brick for a power supply.

Some people don't have desktops, so they would want something in between a desktop and a...small laptop as you mentioned. 13" is too small for multimedia purposes, though it is possible to use. And yes 19" and over are unnecessarily large. 17" is probably the best bet for the OP if he/she doenst have a desktop PC.

I would say go with a 15.6, or smaller. If you really want a larger screen, buy a separate monitor. As soon as you start getting into larger than 15.6 portability does become an issue.

At first I was thinking monitors.. lol. I wouldn't go higher than 1080p on either, but I'd definitely shoot for 1080p or as close to it as I could get. As for screen size... I have an m11x... lol. I'd go as small and powerful as I could afford.

This. Unfortunately, working on this problem, my Qosmio doesn't do 1080p, but this is the lowest I would be happy with. Planning on trying to replace the screen in the future with one that is 1080p. biggrin.gif

15.6" is the perfect size for me. Laptop has a great size screen and good portability. 17" is also pretty good. It's not the best for portability and usually doesn't have the best battery life compared to 15.6. Personally I don't like laptops any smaller, even though they do look nice, but I really like having a numberpad. That's something i can't give up. If I did have another desktop, then i probably would still use a 15.6".
