I plan on getting a laptop for use at uni. I thought it would be best going for the vostro 1700 ( for the 17" screen) as i want to watch movies and play games as well as using it for work. However i wanted to ask about portability? Do you think it would be a problem- ill only be using it in my room in halls or at home or possibly on the train. It would be useful if someone could give me some dimensions/weight.
If portability is going to be a big issue what model would you recommend? Vostro 1500?
Many thanks for your help
