I was considering this since it looks like a great deal, but lugging a 17" into class might be troublesome.

This looks great, but it feels like a large drop for 50 dollars

Most of them are not available, but nothing is still comparable to the 17" one.
What would you consider if I won't be gaming with tough games. Maybe just casually? Would an intel 4000 work considerably fine?
Would a 17" be annoying to carry around in college?
