I just got the x230 thinkpad, and I think it would be a little too small to go any smaller. I've also purchased a docking station so I will be using a 20+ inch screen from home. I wouldn't personally recommend it. Another issue you may face is that it will be hard to find a 11" screen that has the power needed and screen space needed for all the bschool work you will do.
As for a mac, I wouldn't recommend a Mac unless you 100% plan to run windows on it also, especially for finance. Most schools will require atleast a windows partition on a mac, and for finance reasons, I would def get a PC.
I am trying to decide what to do about a laptop (I have a Mac but nothing has made my feek comfortable enough to stick with it for school - finance major).
I am not looking to spend a lot of money, but I am looking for something pretty light. I have been told me Macbook Pro 13.3" is too heavy!
For those in business school or b school alums, is 11.6" too small, especially for finance related work?
