(Should I let a good grope of the keyboard be the deciding factor?)
...duh, maybe I should have posted in the hardware column, but I thought I should ask the "cogniscenti"
The 15" ones are nice. A couple of friends have the 17" model, and they get tired of lugging it around.

That way I had the best of both worlds, an ergonomic desktop setup and a small but powerful laptop for travel. I still use the PowerBook for travel although my main desktop computer these days is a 20" iMac.
I've tried 12" PowerBooks and while they're good on the road (perfect to take at conventions for example) I would not want to work on those everyday. Can't tell about 13.3" though. But really, the 15" is just perfect as a primary machine.
Before that I had a 15" PB ... while a good machine, the screen real estate of the new one is what I need. Dual monitors etc is all possible but forces you behind a desk. I like the hanging in the couch better.
(FWIW I was going to buy it totally souped up, but came to my senses and toned down a bit on memory and hard drive. Now I find myself forgetting, and trying to use MBP touchpad gestures on mi esposa's HP...no workee. I'll have to be schizophrenic to maintain both machines.)
Thanks, all, for your advice.
