Thread: 12" screen
01-21-2005, 09:32 AM #1code777Guest12" screen
Just curious how many 12" owners out there are happy with their screen size. This past week my friend left me with his Toshiba Satallite M35x S161 for "repair" (getting rid of all the spyware, hijack ware, virus, trojans, etc...) and I've been working on it 4 days straight. After going back to my 12" iBook it was like night/day. It got me thinking, should i get an external LCD? Or was this just an illusion, i was use to the 12" but after using the 15.4" widescreen I feel like I need more space.
Any other 12" fans feel this way? And if so did you purchase an external? If so what brand/model? Thoughts? Or am i just insane.

12" screen is just fine for basic tasks, and with 1024x768 is great for web pages. The main reason I went for the smaller screen was portability.

For me, the 12" is just perfect. Big enough to use all day and night and see everything, and also small enough to easily carry around everywhere. I played with some laptops belonging to friends the other day and they had 15" screens and just looked massive! Windows laptops just look like bricks to me now, lol.

I couldn't be happier with something bigger than 12" in my iBook
The main reason is portability
Only recently that I have started using GIMP I could use a bigger screen, but there is no way I prefer a bigger laptop, It would be a desktop with a screen bigger to 17"
So the ibook stays with the 12" screen
by the way, wich is the bigger screen/resolution that the iBook support (externally)?

Well if you want more than a 1024/768,then get something with a bigger screen...

i am perfectly fine with the 12", plus i get extra portability which is much more important to me than an extra 2" screen space with no gain in resolution.
