    I am planning to buy a Powermac 867. The question is 15" or 17" LCD. I wonder if some of you have 15" model, what are you using it for. Is it enought for video editing, 3D, and PhotoShop.

    P.S. I actually know the answers

    There's only $200 difference between the two models (with a rebate) so go with 17"

    And i suspect that 15" is not enought for the tasks listed.

    Thank you for commenting anyway:)

    Go with the 17...I have one at work and now whenever I look at the old 15" CRT that's running on a G3, I go back to the PowerMac....

    I sit right in front of my monitors wherever I am (Maine, NJ, daydreaming), so a 15" is fine for me. Besides, rarely do I go above an 800 x 600 resolution for ANY reason, whether it's Photoshop, Appleworks graphics, 3D Graphics, whatever (I originally used 640 x 480 for these tasks).

    I managed to get the 15 inch cheap and I don't see the need for a 17 inch. But you might be better off with a future 17 inch if you are not in my current position. :)
