A good laptop 17" is the HP dv9700t. It's good for just about everything besides ultra-intense gaming (like Crysis, many lower powered games like The Orange Box run very well). The screen is very nice and very portable. The PC is fairly light as well.

I prefer a larger but powerful (read "useful") laptop as opposed to a small, portable, underpowered subnotebook (read "useless for most games, video editors, photo editors, 3d apps, etc").
