WXGA 1280x800 or occasionally 1280x768; For people who like big text and icons that are easy to read. Less stuff fits on the screen, which translates into more scrolling. b. WXGA+ 1440x900; A modest bump over WXGA. Text and icons are a bit smaller. A little more stuff fits on the screen. c. WSXGA+ 1680x1050; The middle ground. Again, text and icons are smaller than WXGA+, and more stuff fits onto the screen. Good for having applications open side by side, like a web browser while playing a video. d. WUXGA - 1920x1200; Very small text and icons, that can be hard to read. Lots of stuff fits on the screen, which means less scrolling. Good for applications that require a high level of detail like CAD or Photo Editing. c 12) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen?

If yes, a CDRW/DVD-ROM, DVD Burner or Blu-Ray drive? I want it to play DVDs and CDs; it would be cool if it could burn one or both of those, but not totally necessary.
