Is there really a difference between a 15.5 and 15.4 computer screen?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19026points) October 31st, 2010

I’m looking at glare screens for my laptop. All of them are for 15.4 screens, and mine is a 15.5 (because Sony does their own thing..). Will it be ok, or do I need to find one that’s 15.5?

I think Monk might notice the difference, or he might just prefer the 15.5 to the 15.4, given a choice between the two, but that’s a measure of the diagonal of the screen so in terms of the relative height and width of the the two screens I just can’t imagine that any normal human could actually perceive a difference in the sizes.

You also have to factor in manufacturer’s dishonesty. It might be a 15.5 screen, but .1 of that may be covered by the bezel. I would go with @lillycoyote and say that even if the viewable portion was 15.5, that extra .1 probably won’t make a difference and should fit.
