Hello cappacinoguy;

You're really talking about gaming. 'Cause everything else you do - you can do very well on a 14" $800 laptop.

You can actually get better deals ATM - both of those under $1000
Dell XPS 17 @ $950
Core i7-2630QM CPU, 6GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 17.3" 1920x1080 LCD w/ GT 555M graphics
HP Pavilion dv7t Quad Edition $999
Core i7-2630QM CPU, 8GB RAM, 700GB 5400rpm HDD, 17.3" 1920x1080 LCD w/ Radeon HD 6770M graphics. (included 2yr warranty)

Are you sure you want to travel a lot with a 17" laptop?
You can configure the 15" XPS 15" and dv6 to identical performance configurations.

thank you WR2 for the input:

This is my very first laptop, and wasn't sure about how big to go as I will be using it for my entertainment in an isolated area, I do construction, so blu ray was important (and thought a big screen would be better) and also the concern for reliability.

I have not really thought about a 15 inch sreen before your post but I think you are correct as the size seems cumbersome.

So could you please give your opinion of either 15 inch or is it a toss up?
thanks again

You have the same amount of pixels on the screen which means equal amount of work space (or gaming action) on screen.
The only knock on 1920x1080 on 15" is that the text can get too small for some.
But you can adjust text size and change the resolution downward if you ever need help in that area.
