    Why do 17 inch notebooks cost less, I don't even.

    nevermind, I typed that then I thought no one buys 17inch so that's why.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
