So I just realized most of the computers I'm thinking about purchasing for when school starts offer 1366x768 resolutions, but I also realized that the current 17" laptop I use now is 1440x900. I've been using that resolution for 5 years, so my question is will 1366x768 have the potential to ruin my computing experience if I plan to use the new laptop mostly for school? I'll be getting a new laptop in the 13-14" range and don't plan on gaming with it. I'll be a Business major, so no tough software requirements either. The resolutions I'm seeing are 1366x768 or 1600x900 (which, just by numbers seems more appealing to me).
I actually really do like the 1440x900 on my laptop, but I'm not sure that it's mainly due to it being on a 17" screen. I use an external monitor at work, so I think it also has a higher res. I've gone into the computer stores plenty of times and messed around with some of the models I've been considering and I didn't notice any qualms about the 1366x768 resolutions, though it was somewhat limited with what I can do with a display model.
The 1366x768 models are cheaper.
What do you think - 1366x768 or 1600x900 for regular consumer and student use?
