13 inch is obviously somewhat cheaper and lighter, so I'm curious if the smaller screen size would pose any sort of obstacle for note-taking or research purposes
I have a smaller laptop that, while old, works pretty well. I'm giving it to my mom and upgrading to a larger laptop. In my experience, if you're trying to look at two documents on the same screen at once, it's ridiculous to do it on that size of a screen.
Get an external monitor and keep it at your apartment. If you buy a Dell, Lenovo or other business class machine, pick up a cheap docking station on eBay and a nice external keyboard and mouse. You can use the monitor for all your Netflix/Prime/Hulu stuff when you're not studying.
This is my plan
