When comparing laptop screens, be sure to look at the Pixel resolution, that is, the number of pixels across and down. A typical (common) standard a few years ago was 1024 X 768. Now there are higher resolutions available and many different aspect ratios (width to height ratio). A larger screen doesn't necessarily mean more screen "real estate": that is determined by the number of pixels.
I bought a 1400 X 1050 screen and I just love it. The extra resolution was and still is one of the most expensive enhancements you could add to the price of a laptop, often amounting to about a third of the total cost. But to me it was worth it. I can put many more things on the screen at once, and I can configure TMG's person view so that it tells me just about everything except where my ancestor was hiding in 1860.
I would suggest you shop in local stores for a screen dimension that pleases you, then use that for a criterion when making your final selection.

But when I do, I will spend the extra money to get the 15" monitor. I think
