    My brain is too fried to run the numbers. Thinking of finally stepping down from my 17" now that the 15" has a decent density, can someone run the numbers for me as far as PPI on the two displays? I don't want to lose too much pixel density if I stepped down to the smaller display.

    EDIT: Nevermind, wikipedia is my friend. 15" at 1680×1050 is 129 ppi, the 17" at 1921x1200 is 133 ppi

    I am considering the same...I am happy with my 17inch, but really only went with it due to the fact I didn't like the resolution on the previous 15inch models. Now that I have gotten used to the size of the 17, I am wondering if it's worth making the move. Hopefully the stores carry the hi-res version so I can see it in person.
