In the past, I've preferred to use tiled window managers such as i3 or xmonad on devices with smaller screens. They offer more keyboard shortcuts for manipulating windows and take up less vertical space with things like docks or menus.

I was actually looking into Awesome and i3 the other day. I was thinking about trying one of them out on top of gnome to get the feel for it. Snapping widows to the edges of the screen to easily see two windows side by side is already something I rely on, so I could see the benefits of a tiling window manager.
