Well, it'* at least 17" wide (screen size), I would guess more like 18".

That one looks like a good candidate to replace my desktop, when the time comes.

I had that laptop but returned it because of the video card performance. I wanted to play games on it etc. meanwhile I bought a Dell 9300 witha nvidia 6800 256mb card and have not played one game.....lol

Have fun with it....nice that it has the keypad on the side too as my dell dont.
