Dear fellow traveling computer type peoples. I have a quick question for you if you have a moment to offer your opinion:
I'm about to move from a desktop computer to a laptop and I'm trying to choose between a 13" or 15" (mac unibody). I've never owned a laptop before. Through your experience of traveling or just moving around a lot, which do you prefer size wise? I'm trying to balance the size versus convenience of fitting it in my new Smart Alec comfortably, etc. Does the 13" drive you crazy after a while? Also, I do have a 17" flat panel that I would hook up to either when at home.
I pretty sure the 13" will fit in my Smart Alec, even in a vertical brain cell, but I'm not sure about the 15". Maybe in a soft sleeve? The laptop sizing chart does not go there. I don't necessarily want to base my decision on whether the machine will fit in a specific backpack, but it would indeed be handy.
Any opinion is welcome!
