Default 1366x768 15.6 inch screens suck

just thought id share.. just bought a dell inspiron 1545 from the dell outlet, really good deal on it. I have never used a laptop with this screen though.. 15.6 inch widescreen, 1366x768.

well, it sucks, the mess is too short for anything and not wide enough for 2 windows side by side.

im returning it to spend another 100bux on an identical model with a 1440x900 screen.

15.6 formfactor is cool though

It seems LCDs are all going to 16:9 to match HDTV. I hate the loss of vertical resolution too.

get the 900p option or the 1080p option

Studio with 15" 1080p screen is nice

I rock a 1280x800 15.4 inch laptop personally, its perfect if you ask me. At work everyone has been getting these new dell screens that are 1440x900 and everything seem to look tiny on them. Not a big fan. I'm lucky I still got a couple year old pair of 19 inchers that are 1280x800.

Move the task bar to the right, and you have the same vertical room as a 16:10 1280x800.

i basically have 2 identical 14.1" laptops (1 for home, and work happened to issue me the same one). i got mine with a 1280x800 screen for roughly the same reasons since my eyesight sucks, other one has the 1440x* resolution screen...and i have to say i was wrong. the extra real-estate is worth it, and the text can almost always be tweaked to more comfortable levels.

the 1 solid benefit i can think of is, if you play 3D games or anything, you'll get noticeably better framerates running at native resolution.
