Oh, I see what he did there... He took a sentence about LAPTOP SCREENS, and recontextualized it as a phrase of the boudoir. In this case, the dimenions of the diagonals of the screens, commonly measure in inches, where made to correspond to supposed remarks on the length of the penis, in this case eliptically ascribable to the author of the joke himself.

The humor arises clearly frome both the aforementioned recontextualization, and the exceptional putative measure of the penis. 17 inches, while not unheard of, is in fact over three times that figure quoted as the average length of the erect penis.

Here's what I'd do.

I mean did.

Get a faster 13 or 14 inch laptop, and a cheap 19 inch (or larger as budget allows) separate monitor. Or two if you're going to be bouncing back and forth between two locations. Also get a couple of full sized USB keyboards and mice. This way you get (most of) the best of both worlds--large screens at home and compact travel for on the road.

There's a big difference between lugging a 8 pound laptop 100 yards to your car, and carrying it and the rest of your carry-on luggage 6 or 8 miles through 4 different airports.

get a 14-15.6" laptop, 17" are just fucking useless and lame, if you want gaming just get a second monitor if 15.6" is to small.

It's too late for you, but if you're not already a Photoshop Ninja then look into The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). It's probably not as good as photoshop, and certainly won't have the high-end publishing tools, but most of us don't work for NatGeo or Playboy, so it's good enough.
