    I have both a iBook 12" and a PowerBook G4 15". The iBook is much more portable when you using it for example on a train or so, but when you've packed it (closed it), the difference isn't that big. I will now pass on the iBook to my mom, and just use the PB, the screen is much much better on the 15".

    Well I have a 17" which is well useful for viewing two web browser windows at once for example because the display is soooooooo wide.

    However I am going to fly economy class in December and was wondering if anybody had experience trying to do this with a 17" (You know like on that Powerbook TV advert where theres a guy with a 12 sitting next another with a 17 on the airplane).

    When I had my 14.1" vaio it was ok on an economy class seat. Just.

    all powerbooks also feature duel display mode... I hook my 12" into a 17inch flat panel screen and run two screens at once... so I have more room for garage band and photoshop.

    I have a 12" PB and I don't really mind the size. The thing that I do to offset it when using it at home is to disconnect my 17" monitor from my PC (I'm a recent converter) and hook it to my PB and span the screen. That offsets the screen size for desktop use and development, but on the road I like to have the smaller size, which means smaller bag and everything, too.
