I've always been a PC guy.  I was thinking about picking up a macbook pro for a change of pace...

If you're truly prestigious you don't get a laptop, you get a secretary.

Serious question: I'm bringing my 17" laptop.  Too big?  I'm thinking the bigger it is, the less likely the professor is to call on me...

I'd say borderline. If you intend to use an external mouse and not touch pad etc as well, you can expect your neighbor to not like you much.

I got the 14.1" widescreen T61.  It's not ridiculously small but it's fairly compact.
