If you're in the market for a customized laptop, whether it's for you or a family member, one of the most important questions to ask is what size screen you should get. The thing to note about a lot of laptops is that they have similar components on the inside. Both Apple and Windows notebooks have Intel processors, use solid state drives and come with anywhere between 4-16 gigabytes (GB) of memory.

Where they differ is in physical design (as well as operating system), and the screen is the focal point of that design. The basic consideration with thinking about screen size is how you value portability versus performance. A bigger screen is going to give you more space to arrange windows, making it easier to multitask. A smaller screen provides less detail and freedom in that regard, but if you tote your computer around with you at the office or at home, or you carry it whenever you go on errands, you'll appreciate the smaller size of computers like the MacBook Air.

For a nice balance between both worlds, a 13 or 14 inch laptop may be the ideal solution. While these models may weigh a few extra pounds, they'll still be small enough to fit comfortably in most backpacks. And the screen is big enough that you can navigate between windows and documents easily.

Apple laptops come in a variety of sizes, so if you're still not sure which one you want to go with, check out the latest offerings at the PortableOne online store today!
