Wide screen is more immersive, but some games don't natively support it if you game. For modelling/photo editing I am for ever wanting to have widescreen.

The only thing that is making me draw away from it is some people say it looks like a 15" ...

Big monitor doesn't mean it's better. Get whichever one you think is cooler. I think I'd spring for widescreen.
