The odd bit

Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is an enemy action.

1440×900 or 1920×1200?

That’s the question I’m asking myself. Here are the facts:

  • 17″ laptop screen
  • Gaming is not the primary nor the secondary purpose of the laptop, but I’m not saying I won’t game on it.
  • I’m a software developer and it will likely be used for some remote dev’ing.
  • I’m used to 1280×1024 as my standard resolution.
  • I’ve looked at 1280×800 widescreen resolution and the height is not big enough for me.

The screen should either be a 1440×900 (WXGA) or a 1920×1200 (WUXGA). If price is not an issue, what would you pick given the above constraints?

And a subquestion: Is 1920×1200 too small for 17″?

    Iv been Reading Threads About this and people have said that a 15.4” Laptop with 1920×1200 is to small. But if your looking at a 17” i would say that 1920×1200 looks awesome on a 17”
