- More space to open multiple windows, more space for pics on web pages (like in the 'You fap' thread :P)
- Movies/Pictures look better
- Laptop may not be able to handle running games at native res and running non-native res' doesn't look as good. (1366x768 will look better on a 1366x768 screen than a 1920x1080 one)
- This may be subjective, but I find that without making the text bigger, it's harder to read on a higher res screen.
The higher vs lower res debate is hard because a lot of it is subjected. For me I would take the higher res screen because for the small amount of gaming I do in comparison to everything else, the lower res screen is just not worth it.
