I am doing some traveling and i want to continue to run my websites. I have a 17inch G4 but its just to big to carry around all day. The 12inch G4's look like they would be very convenient to carry around but not sure if it would be to cramped to do actual work on. Do you guys have any experience with traveling and doing work on a laptop. What size works best for you 12", 15", 17"?

What do you use most? Photoshop or a Putty? I have a 12 inch Vaio that I can barely use for Photoshop, but for surfing the net, coding, Word, Excel, Putty it is more than fine. But the benefit really kicks in when I am carring it around and using it in cramped places like planes or coffee shops. I save the Photoshoping tasks and gaming for my 21 inch desktop.

I think 12" is quite easy for travel/work. Just check the battery life.

ive got a 15 inch toshiba satellite pro and everytime i travel i wish i had one of those tiny 12 inchers

for serious graphics work even a 15 incher is too small but doing stuff like gradients in PS doesnt require a big screen. i believe you could do that on a 12inch

my gfriend has a 17 inch acer and the word portable is a serious overstatement

I have a 15" display on a heavy base. It's a pain to carry around. The company owner wanted a lighter laptop because he travels a lot. I ordered a great, inexpensive one from Compaq with a wide screen display. The screen isn't as tall so it saves weight and space when using it. It's also a good 4 pounds lighter. Nice comptuer.
