I mean most 15/15.6 laptops I see have 1366x768 resolution, would it really be a problem for netflix or if I'm watching a live stream

Er, I mean... no, it's not a problem. Yes, it's fine.

Just don't go trying to do too much gaming on the thing.

Personally I'm fine with that resolution, a lot of people on this board say it's gross though. I wouldn't want to game at that resolution on a desktop but for basic stuff on a laptop I don't mind it. For YouTube/Netflix you won't have a problem, you just won't get any benefit from moving from 720p to 1080p (haven't used Netflix on a pc ever so I'm not sure how much control they give you over stream quality).

My laptop had a 15.6 screen at that resolution and the pixels were way too large and you could see the "lines" between them too clearly

Really at that size it's pretty ugly to be below 1600x900

It's far from ideal but you can live with it.

I have a 14" 1366x768 display on this laptop and I really wish It had at least a 1600x900 or 1080p screen. Its not horrible, but its right on the edge of what I would consider "acceptable" in this day and age.

On the plus side, its easier on my crappy integrated GPU for games >.<

I've seen them side by side. I bought the one with the 1080p display.

My 14" also has 1366x768 and its display, to me, has always been the worst part of an otherwise great laptop. Even at that size, I can sometimes see lines between pixels. It's also limiting when it comes to multitasking. Keep in mind that 1080p has over one million more pixels, which is nearly double of what 1366x768 has. All that means for video is that if you're watching something in 1080p, it will look better, but it won't do that much for you. If you're using your computer for school/work, you will have more space to do more things at once.

Go to a Best Buy or something and look at laptops, comparing 1366x768 and 1080p (and others, but those are the most common resolutions). If you're satisfied with the look of 1366x768 on a 15/15.6" laptop, then go ahead and get that. If not, get a 1080p one. If you're a multitasker or will be using it for school/work, then try multitasking on it by opening multiple programs and seeing how you like it.
Sigs are overrated. Seriously.
