Is anyone here an advocate of the 12" PowerBook, or is this machine ultimately the Laptop of Regret? I am torn between the 12" and the 15". Quite frankly, I like the smaller and more compact design of the 12", but am nervous that while it's screen won't bother me when writing, it will be bad news for watching DVDs. But the difference in price between models pretty much allows for a 12" and a killer external display. Is there any drawback to using the 12" with a external display, such as it's graphics card simply not being to handle the picture quality the external display could theoretically support? Does that make any sense? I'm not in graphic design, digital video editing, or anything of the likes. I'm a writer, and this puts me in an interesting quandry; technically I don't need anything more then a word processor, but I do want a good quality machine that will last me for a long while, allow me to enjoy some recreation (watching DVDs, etc), and be capable of upgrading if some killer new tech comes along that needs not warrant a new computer (thus, the lack of expandability on the 12" versus the expansion slot on the 15" is food for thought. But what the heck would I even need that option for, anyway?). So is there anyone who thinks the 12" has all a non-professional digital video editor really needs? Or is the 15" all that and a bag of chips? Also, I know it sounds like the display problems are all solved on the 15" but were they ever around on the 12"? Many, many, many thanks in advance for any help, advice, or common sense you could give me on this subject. I'm getting one or the other, but I just can't figure out which.
