I don't think that this screen is going to make much difference on the portability part and the power as the screen will not take any more battery life then the other screen choices (maybe the LED would be a little better, but I have the 6 and the 9 cell battery so no big deal)
You want to know what I find odd? You asked a question asking for people's input when you had already made up your mind and then you write off any input you get that doesn't agree with your own. Why ask if you won't listen?
Anyway, you claiming that my point was that you should buy the weakest components possible on a 15.4" was completely off the mark. Or maybe I just couldn't follow what you were saying because of the questionable grammar and ridiculously run on sentences all put together through a series of ellipses in a vain attempt to connect your thoughts.
Now, I understand you must have limited technical knowledge due to your claims that *mobile* processors and dedicated *mobile* video cards belong in desktops, but try to bare with me here.
Screens *generally* have nothing to do with performance
. I know, I know, this is a shocker. Sit back, take a deep breath, and continue reading when you are ready. I raise this point because you keep talking about how you need a portable powerhouse when the issue is about screen resolution, I don't see the connection here. Now there are some cases when screen resolution can impact performance. For example: watching a movie on a 1920x1200 resolution can cause quality degradation if your video card can't handle scaling the video up to such high resolutions. A very similar thing happens when playing games at that res., your FPS will drop big time.
So again, I don't really know how to end this post because I have no clue what point you were trying to make as most of what you said was pretty incoherent. But all I can say is that I hope that business work you do doesn't involve writing reports.
