I have recently bought a 17 inch laptop for uni but it is far too big for lectures. I can barely see the board.
What do I do? I want to return the laptop but my parents live far away and won't be here anytime soon. This issue is stressing me out and I want to replace this with a smaller laptop fast.
Just as a side note my parents bought the laptop which is why I say that they live far away.
Yeah mine was 15 inch. It was good and bad.
I liked the fact that I could watch films/shows etc and not feel as if i was looking at a tiny screen, and I think its nicer to write essays/read from a bigger screen.
However, I didn't take it to campus most of the time which can be a pain. Only took it when I had to. I ended up buying a small one for around £100 just to take to lectures/seminars etc.Quickly broke though...get what you pay for.
Buy 3 bubble wraps, use all three rolls to wrap the laptop. It should be enough if you use all three to wrap the laptop. It won't break if it has 3 rolls of protection. Send it back and buy a new one, ideally 14 inch, which I can tell you from experience is the perfect screen size.
It's a question of practical use for doing work at uni or procastination use for watching things when you should be working. A students screen size says a lot about them haha
>17inch is too big
>can barely see the board
Maybe OP's a manlet and the laptop's just fine?
