Hardware, Embedded Systems News of the year in the technology industry. "The Fit's most important spec its display, with a nod to Sony's TV division: they come with 1600x900 or 1920x1080 touchscreens and nothing else. 'We're not going to offer 1366x768," reps said. 'We've killed that.'" This is Sony's new, simplified entry-level notebook line. Very, very welcome news in a world where even a supposedly "Pro" laptop that costs $1199 ships with... A 1280x800 resolution. This bottom-of-the-barrel crap needs to be eradicated, and good on Sony for taking this step.

Some people think bigger is better.

Until OP has to travel with his 40" "pro" laptop I guess.

For me a laptop screen mustn't be too small, but almost just as important not too big. My MacBook Pro is the right size at 1280x800.

Besides, screen size is just one of many aspects that defines the quality of a laptop.

... and some people need to understand the difference between "diagonal size" and "resolution."
