Asus K73E is only $499.99 at Best Buy now. Has a 17" monitor with 1600x900 resolution and 2.3 ghz i3. I'm tempted to buy this just cause I want a big screen and the price is appealing. Would a monitor of this size and resolution drain a 6-cell a lot quicker than a 15"? I've never owned a 17" laptop monitor so I don't know anything about how they perform unplugged.
