screen size for notebook computers for coding

    Hello,

    .NET has a development environment.
    SEMrush
    A lot of people seem to like the smaller 13" notebook computers for coding and portability.

    I was looking at a 13" and a 15" model. Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

    It's not directly an ASP question. But I'm thinking there are people who code daily within ASP's development environment or a different one.

    Maybe the way to go is to use the 13", and then hook a second larger monitor up in the background for other screen resources. But maybe the IDE takes up a lot of screen space and it's better to have a 15" notebook computer.

    Whilst I personally don't code much these days, I actually use 2 mac computers (dual booting into windows) for when I do use VS. One has a 27" screen and the other a 11.6". Obviously the larger screen allows you to have a lot more on the screen at the same time and is great for any kind of coding. The 11.6" has a resolution of 1366x768 so doesn't actually look that bad but as I tend to do more ASP.Net and hand code rather than drag and drop I do tend to turn off a lot of the extra windows to free up screen real estate

    I think screen resolution is more important than notebook size - so long as your eyesight is OK.
    Used to use a 15" Dell laptop with 1600 x 1200 UXGA display which was great - but now that screens have changed to wide format, the best available seem to be 1366 x 768 in small sizes, which is OK for coding.
    Certainly wouldn't want one to use one of the 1024 x 600 screens - far too small to use for coding, and even adding an external monitor, most don't have graphics capability to provide much better resolution
