Summary: I remember switching from a full-sized 15-inch laptop to a more portable 12-inch model over a year ago. When I did this, I entered a brave new world of portability and convenience. Sure, I gave up some screen real estate, but I gained so much more in terms of flexibility and ease-of-use.
Pros: Ultra-portable, Can be used to signal the space shuttle in orbit (very bright), Laser pointer remote with “mouse” functionality, Built-in 1W speaker for multimedia use, USB connectivity for limited desktop control via included remote
Cons: No direct component video inputs (can use VGA adapter cable, not included), At brightest levels, colors desaturated, Intrusive fan noise (Eco mode doesn’t lessen)
