Clockwork is right, it seems as thoug the i5/i7 series processors run much cooler. I bought my girlfriend an i5 15" MBP and I bought myself a i7 17" MBP and her's never even gets warm. She does the basic web browsing, email, photos, videos. My 17" i7 is on 24/7 and I constantly use it(flash intensive things, gaming, etc) and it usually gets "slightly warm" at the most.

It all depends on the screen real estate that you decided you need. I'm a person that will always take the biggest screen because I always want as much as possible; hence the 17"

Also take into account whether you multi-task as well and if you'll be wanting to see more than one application at a time.
