    I realized that I never posted about these two beauties either!

    The 15" one was from yet another forum member who was doing a clear out. I had to solder on a new DC-in jack, and its a bit on the rough side cosmetically, but over its a great machine. Could use an SSD, but still snappy, considering its the last of the PPC notebooks.

    The 17" one is basically mint. I bought it off craigslist for $40 already decently loaded, just needed a new HDD. I'd definitely like to drop an SSD in this bad boy, but its wicked fast already too!

    I had a 17" that was dropped down some stairs and suffered constant KPs, and it caught fire after the inverter board shorted. Finally happy to have another one!

    How do you find the two compare? I had these two machines and found the 17" in a different class, despite near identical spec. I sold the 15" as it seemed surplus.

    Agreed. Theres a certain quality about the 17" that I can't put my finger on. Still love them both, but the 17" is champ!
