    I was wondering this. The 20 inch provides a faster processor and upwards to a 256MB videocard. But the real question is, does that make up for the larger screen size and higher resolution? The screen has 35% more pixels compared to the 17inch. Anyone know which is better for gaming? More specifically, World of Warcraft?

    i highly doubt either the extra VRAM or the bigger screen would make a difference. The slight processor bump on the 2.0 should give you a few more fps...

    I'm pretty sure you won't find a difference between the two machines.
