it's not as convenient as my 15.4 ibm, but its certainly not too big.. and im saying that from an owner's perspectiveMr.Gadget said:Is the 17" MBP too big to be used in the average coach class airplane seat?
(I'm whittling down my pros/cons in 15.4 vs 17 MBP)
Indeed. I personally find it a bit cramped to use my 12" PB in coach. In United's Economy Plus it's just about OK, but if the guy in front reclines, I find it a little cramped, but still usable. A 17" PB would be too big for me in coach.Ed H said:I think the OP's physical size is a factor that no one has considered either. I think a 15" is pushing it in coach.
For those who travel weekly, they cannot afford to make the same call as you. Screen real estate is far less important that actually being able to open the computer.aricher said:I would never let whether or not it can fit in coach hold me back from buying another 17"
What planes are you flying on?Foggy said:17 is fine imo - just dont expect to go watching pr0n!
