After reading few websites according to what I have read the new standards would be 16" which would be kind of awesome expecially since they are going to be lightweight aluminum frame. that would provide not only cooling efficiency but a good long lasting material.

 Bigger might be better, but in the end does it not make it more cumbersome as well?  I mean yes lighter weight materials and all but its still physically larger.  13~15 is perfect in my opinion for when I am moving around having to carry the thing with me.

thats why i went with a 15.4" over a 17" but the alluminum housing sounds interesting (what manufacturer is this thread in refference too?).  but i guess i won't be in the market for a new laptop for a few years .. hopefully.
