New Poll: What's the ideal size of a laptop screen for you?
Authored by: Milliways2 on Jul 10, '12 05:30:20AM

I chose a 13" Macbook Pro for its size, weight and portability (and elegant design - but that applies to the whole range).

At times I would prefer a bigger screen, but my previous experience (with Windows notebooks) is that I rarely traveled with them because they were too unwieldy.

The ideal size for portability is an A4 folder i.e. just a bit larger than an A4 sheet.

The iPad is great for reading documents but too small for serious work.

On serious work - the major problem is aspect ratio. Widescreen displays maybe OK if you want to watch movies, but not for anything else. I am more constrained by the screen height than anything else. I would prefer a 4:3 ratio.
