The only thing I would be concerned on in getting one with a bigger screen is power consumption - if that's an issue with you (as it is with me). My 701 uses less than half the power my MacBook uses - a huge attraction, but I've always been under the impression the bigger the screen the more amps are drawn. The counter of course is the solid state drive will help keep it down vs a laptop with a traditional HD.
