The weight and bulk are indeed a problem. I have a 15.6" and it is hefty
taking to conferences and such. After shoulder problems from having it
on my shoulder for a few days, I heeded my brother's advice from years
earlier and got a roller case.

I don't think any 15" laptops have 1600x900 displays, so you are looking at
17" or even 18". Those are even heavier.

Take that into account if you lug the laptop around. Not fun.
