It's easier to package the same hardware into a 17" frame then it is into a 15" frame.

I suspect it's really that more folks buy 17" because we ALL know that bigger is better even when it ain't. ;) Many folks buy laptops and use them as a desktop thus the larger size is preferred by many. A 15" is actually portable so they can exploit people who desire portability.

People are becoming such wimps these days.. I would (did ) still buy a 17" over a 15 anyday...

Although battery time i would of though would last longer in a 15" although personally i like the larger screen regardless.

Is ridiculous bullshit. The construction is the same, and you would've known that if you have ever seen a laptop from inside. And I believe you didn't (at least the ones that were made after 2007).
Of course the difference in price is dictated by the difference in hardware. 17's usually don't come with discrete graphics and also use budget CPU's (Pentium ULV or i3), while 15's are aimed at performance segment (and mostly being equipped with i5 ULV and something like Radeon R7 M/R9 M/GT 840M).

To bad only Alienware makes 18" laptops. Personally I like bigger screen also, and the weight difference is not that big between an 17" and a 15"

There's nothing ridiculous about it. There's less worries about putting the same hardware in a 17" form factor than there is in a 15". The fact you have no idea what you're talking about, doesn't change that fact.

Listen here, kid. There's a dissasmbled mainstream 17'' laptop:

And there's 15'' model on the exact same Lynx platform, with the exact same price range parts:

And another one:

And yet another:

And now back to 17.3'':
http://www.notebookcheck.net/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_E1_772G_Wartungfach_7608c410fe.jpg

See? The amount of non-used space is ridiculous, cut it off and you'll see that you can fit same-sized parts into 11.6'':
http://www.notebookcheck.net/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_Aspire_UnterseiteOffen_9dcf314271.jpg

It doesn't make it harder to fit all this stuff if you have a brain. I do, and I use to draw chassis.

Now tell me, how using more plastics, aluminium, and textolit helps you to lower the price, while all the added space not being used at all?
I know how things in this industry work, I've put my hands on more than 10 laptops' guts since 2010, and you know absolutely no-thing, which you just have proven. Don't **** with me.

These aren't disassembled laptops, they are laptops with partial bottom cover removed. Which is about as useful as showing me your spare tire and tells me that all cars are the same. Are you sure you touched a laptop before? Use your brain please. You don't know a flying **** about what you are talking about, go get drunk on some cheap Russian vodka.

If it wasn't for the last sentence, I would've actually continued busting that profane myth with some more obvious facts (specially for you), but turns out it was all just a setting for an insult (and a weak attempt to point out my grammar mistakes, what was your second language again?).
By the way, I don't drink at all, nor would I prefer a cheap drink to the expensive one. Sorry for bordering your obsession with counting one's wealth, I suppose you've had some problems with money in younger years, and I'm sincerely sorry for triggering those memories.

I only thought things are different outside. People like you destroy the remains of my trust in the better place.

Oooh, look at Mr. Tough guy - don't fuck with me. I'm shaking in my little boots. You basically just proved my point for me, so thanks for that. It's easier to package in the larger rooms because there's more room - wasted room even. So thank you, for doing my own work for me, to prove my point.
