Following up on Dr. Pfeffer's post (couldn't resist that reference):

You probably mean a larger size monitor, but I have a laptop with the extra-wide screen, designed for media more than anything else. As the screens get smaller the difference in the two monitor types can be important.

Essentially, on this "media laptop", do to the wider aspect ratio I had two bad choices. Either I saw a decent number of lines of code (and any sort of document) but it was too small to comfortably read or I could expand it (for example, to full screen width) and the reading was fine but I saw so few lines it was also a problem. View the entire page at once was, even if just to check formatting (documents) often only marginally useful.

The rest - I can only agree with "the Dr's" answer. Unless you're a gamer on the side.
