    Advice always seems to be buy 20" if can afford it, bigger is better, more "real estate", no one switches from 20" to 17", 20" the new 17", etc., etc., but does anyone out there actually prefer the 17"? This may be heresy, but has anyone found the 20" to be just too large a chunk of bright white plastic, or had similar concerns?
    Thanks.

    I think the 17" is the better deal (and quite a great deal, at that), but do I actually think it's a nicer computer? Well, it's exactly the same but slightly slower, no 256 MB GPU option, and of course less screen. So no, I don't prefer it. It's not like a laptop; how could a smaller screen be better?
