    I went to BestBuy today and I looked at a couple of notebooks. I was initially thinking I wanted a MacBook. BestBuy didn't have any Macs, but they did have some 13.3" notebooks. The screen looks so small compared to say a 15.4". For those who have it, and those who don't, want is your opinion on this screen size?

    I have a 15.4" and I wouldn't want to move to a smaller screen, but it may be worthwhile if portability is important to you.

    I have a T42 @ 14.1" 4:3 - which is about the same width, just a little taller and IMO it's perfect. Got the girl a blackbook a little while back and we both love it. If anything I wish there was a higher-res option...but the size is perfect for me :dunno:

    I have a 15.4" DELL and I bring it to class and it doesn't seem to be too "bulky".

    It took some getting used to, but I like it.

    It depends on the use of your laptop.

    I have a blackbook and I carry it everywhere right now, and love the portability of it. Much better than my old powerbook, nearly as good as my old ibook 12", and better than my friends MBP's...

    And the screen fits just about anything I want to put on it. It's a bit small for CAD/CAM stuff, but still usable.

    However, I'm graduating school in about 2 weeks and won't be moving around each day quite as much and am excited to pick up one of the new updated MBP's.
