[QUOTE=steven2874;2444416]This response, along with others posted by ferd and hemispasm, are good examples of the lack of critical thinking frequently exhibited in this forum. First of all, because something makes no sense to you means just that. Your views are far from universal. Second many laptops have larger screens with good portability. I recently had mine on a journey from San Francisco to Rome for five weeks and experienced no back pain carrying my 17 inch 1440x900 display. Those of you who think in kilos might have difficulty however. Finally, we should all welcome all options possible and let the market decide what “makes no sense”. In all fairness I should also admit that I was a big fan of the Betamax VCR, the LaserDisc platform and of course HD DVD…[/QUOTE]Now you are trying for some reason to make this personal
As i pointed out several times in my posts, this is my [U]personal[/U] opinion which is of course far from a universal truth, as far as yours is. And this is a forum were people post their personal opinions, now if a lack of critical thinking is what you usually find here, you are welcome to open up our minds with yours, as long as it is an opinion and not your universal truth. Have a nice day.
Edit: I am travelling abroad at least 10 to 15 times per year, for short 3-4 days at a time, carrying around a 17inch laptop each time aint my cup of tee, but if it is fine for you, then whatever floats your boat But your universal truth about 17inch laptops being easily portable is far from mine, from where I am standing.
