Laptops & Screen Sizes


Decisions! Decisions!

I am in the process of looking to buy a new computer. My old computer size is like 12.5″ and that has just been too small for years. I can’t blow things up like I wold like to and it is overall just annoying. And that is why I don’t think I can get a 13″ computer. However, I am going to get an Apple computer and they are all really expensive. The 13″ is the least inexpensive. There is also the 15″ which I think is a pretty good size but it’s several hundred more dollars and way more than I would like to spend. It is also heavy. I am also concerned that maybe on the 15″ it would be too big so I would miss things that are happening on areas of the screen that I can’t see because of my limited peripheral vision.

Apple computers.. actually, all Apple products…. are really good with accessibility so I’m sure I will find a way to make it work regardless but this is a big decision because it’s two grand. I am thinking right now I just may go big and figure out how to make it work if it’s “too” big at times.

I guess I’ll just have to go look at them but this is way more complicated than I thought.
