[Bob Zelin] "I never understood this mindset. When you are in the video business, and you do a shoot, you have a TON of gear that has to be moved around - your camera, lenses, tripod, batteries, chargers, cables, outboard recorder, outboard monitor, etc, etc."

Definitely true for some uses. But I find it is just barely possible to edit on an airline even with a 15" laptop. It won't lay flat and you have to tip it up towards yourself on most seats. I think the 16" will be fine if they reduce the bezel. And I'll likely get one when it is time to upgrade. But there's almost no way to use the classic 17" with modern aircraft seating space.

And yes, I have been known to edit at Starbucks when I'm on the road and don't have anywhere else to go.

Of course my preference is always to edit with two 4K monitors in the office. But there are times it's not possible. Besides the fact if space is no issue, I'd take a 15" laptop with my iPad as a second monitor over a single 17" any day.
