One serious answer? I guess Northwestern's claim of a mature student body is a little off.

Can anybody clarify what size would be too small?

Any insights or other considerations would be appreciated.


I had a small backpack and just carried the computer separately. It worked well.

Think: carry three casebooks. That would be fine. Also: relax. People are just joking around.

Weird, I didn't know that part of maturing was losing your sense of humor. :P

I think the general concensus is that anything under 4.5" is verging on too small, and below 4" is really just unusable. 5" isn't going to wow anybody but seems workable in practice.

I'm sorry but could you clarify what the measurements you are referring to relate to?

Great General. Died because he tried plotting to kill Hitler.


Not great when Monty soundly thrashed him at El Alamein.


Monty beat him because the Allies had superior numbers and equipment.
