I had a Panasonic Toughbook years ago with a 12" screen, and then I got a Dell a with a 14" And although the 12" didn't really bug me as I remember, I did appreciate the extra room that the 14" game me.But I'm debating about this too. Should I get a 12" iMac or Powerbook, or a larger model? Ultimately I think the weight difference is perhaps less than it seems -- probably only one or two pounds. So for that is it worth the smaller screen (it's a fair bit smaller when you look at them side to side).I'm leaning strongly towards the 14" to be honest. Because it is just a lot easier to compose documents with a bigger screen. Your eyes don't get as tired and you can see more of the document on your screen (and have a better idea of what it'll look like when printed). The other thing you might want to think about is the fact that the 12" IBM doesn't have a touchpad. Now I admit they have the best eraser mouse I've seen, but I still don't think it's anywhere near as good as a touchpad.
Fabyahluss,Which store carries IBMs? I'd really like to try them out before I buy but wasn't able to find them in any of the stores near where I live.Help!?
