    if you don't need the screen size then just go with the 15'', it's basically the same machine.

    I was in the same situation.. I choosed the 15" only because of its size..

    When i Work from home I Use my extended display in Pivot mode, so i have the 24" 16/10 1920X1200 i Vertical mode, Works great for me.
