That's how I feel about the 15" vs 13" Series 9. I think I'd prefer something where I can reasonably have 2 windows tiled whereas with a 13" it's quite squished. Good to hear about the trackpad, I think I'll end up going with the 9 as this is more for schoolwork and not so much a hangout device.
The screen on Series 9 15" is one and only letdown. Vertical viewable angle is about 5 degrees. The contrast is poor (compared with yoga and even the dell xps 14 ultrabook). Screen came with a strong blueish tint. Had to visit a few forums to recalibrate the screen...even then...the contrast is poor. It is MAD bright though...
If you can wait and money is no problem, FHD PLS screen is coming to the series 9 2013 version, but who knows how much that will cost and when in 2/3 quarter it will be release.
Go to a store and check out the screen first. I am fine with mine for now as I used it to do a lot of reading and typing, but movie watching may not be up to your expectation.
..sorry OP for the off topic post...
Is there a cover for the keyboard when you use it in tablet mode or are you mashing the keys in that mode ?
Here it is
$40+. Your bestbuy reward zone points might knock off 5-10$
Highly recommend it if you want to keep the machine in good condition after extensive use.
