    Hi,

    I already own a MacBook Pro 13'' (Mid 2009), and I think 13'' is just too small, and I just want one of the i? processors. I'm doubting between 15 and 17 inch.

    My usage: Surf the internet, check email, listen music and do twitter. I also like to use Steam with the Orange Box (mostly use Team Fortress 2).
    I will use it often on my desk (85&), sometimes in the living room (13%) and take it with me during holiday (2%).

    Which size is good for me?
    And which MBP can my usage handle good?

    Thanks

    Go with the 15 inch.
    17 inch isn't a notebook — it's a mobile desktop.

    If you do not have to lug it to university or work than you can take what ever screen real-estate you like most.

    I was just thinking about a whole new plan: Getting an iPad for portability and an iMac 27'' i5 for the gaming / desk work. Wouldn't that be a great combination guys?

    I do not know how people can consider the iPad and a laptop a choice. They are so much different. The iPad is soooooo limited. Besides, if you do the back to school sale, you get a free mini iPad (iTouch) with your Macbook.:)

    I think you should go with the 15" with a Core i5 processor. You'll be able to do things on your 13" even better!
