Yes, Stephen, I have used a 17" in an airplane other than 1st Class.   
It was tight, but doable.

Have you ever used a laptop smaller than 17" anywhere but on an  
airplane?  It is fine to speak from your experience, but don't speak  
from your experience as if it is the be all and end all of everyone's  
experience.  For that matter, if you answered my question at the  
beginning of this paragraph with "Yes" then perhaps you are cheating  
yourself when you speak from one experience as if it is the whole of  
your experience.
