I can undestand gaming at 1080p, but working 1080p on a 17" laptop is so yuck.Just make sure you have 100 % scaling. 1080 on a 16:9 17.3" has practically the same DPI as 1680x1050 8:5 on a 15.4". Which was perfectly fine. Dell just supplied it from factory with some silly DPI scaling which looked hideous in the Windows XP. Back then, I considered getting the 1920x1200, I was just afraid it's going to be too small (they didn't have one in the showroom). I didn't regret it (I met someone with the 1200 at a conference). Back then, many laptops had 768 or something. That was "yuck." :-)
Yes, text isn't as smooth as on a "4k" screen but on the plus side, there are no scaling issues. To me, the UI is just perfect size. I could take slightly finer, but as years go by, I don't mind. Gone are the days when I used font sizes below 10 px.
