Paul (Looney),
I have copied Stephen B's post, and your reply and my reply ... which  
was to Stephen's claim, not yours.  Sorry, I should have addressed it  
with his name.  I just thought that he was making a claim that was  
perhaps valid for him, but he was stating it as if his needs and  
evaluations were (obviously) everybody's.

I beg to differ.  I use the (pre-Intel) 17" PowerBook (Apple) and  
because of what I use it for (math tutoring and educational  
development and demonstration)  I could use a smaller laptop but that  
would not be "practical" for me for the tutoring aspect and no more  
"practical" for the development and demo.  Personally, except for the  
likely price with current tech, I'd love to have a 23" laptop.  Makes  
me shy away from your other claims because you apparently make some  
assumptions about other people's uses that don't really hold water.
