The Toshiba Tecra M10 has got very good specs, but the screen size is only 14.1 inch, and comes with analogue graphic card connection. http://www.geekwithlaptop.com/toshib...iew-and-specs/
The Macbook Pro comes with 15.4 inch, and DVI graphic card connection.
My questions are:
1. Does the difference between 14.1 inch and 15.4 inch make a significant difference?
2. When connecting to an external monitor, does the difference between analogue and DVI connection affect output quality significantly. (assuming I use analogue cable directly, not via conversion adaptor).
The price difference is very significant, and the Mac cost a lot more compared to the Toshiba. Is it worth paying so much more just for a little wider screen, and the DVI connection?
(I am not considering the Tecra A10 model, because it is not offered to students at special price.)
Your sincere advise are welcomed.
