Oh yea anyone that owns a 5680 is the 1600 by 1200 too small?
mmmm... lets see.
To be more effective at taking notes.
To be able to record a lecture if needed.
To watch a movie when class is boring.
To listen to some music.
To play some games.
To type a document for another class.
Do homework for other classes.

If I read your other response right, and you are 13, then of course you would have no idea as to why someone would want to take their notebook to a class, and you probably dont need to. I am guessing you still get your "recess" and you worry about what youll do then.
Why do we need centrino and the likes?
-Because some people arent in the position in which they can have adapters whereever they need to use their notebook. When I have gone to excavation sites with some anthropologist friends, or when I have been out in the desert studying the Taraumara indians of Mexico, there is no place where you can plug in your notebook, and therefore you need as much battery life as possible. Also, I could think of many other situations in which a person would need them, because the fact is, not everybody is content with a 2 hour battery life that machines like the 56xx series provides.
Oh, and to answer your last question about the screen resolution. No 1600x1200 wont be too small.
