Because mine is minimally portable (pre-covid: daily from work to home, and once or twice a week to conference rooms) I'd probably go with the 17 because I'll be using the laptop screen in addition to my external displays; and bigger is better there. If I had to fly for work occasionally 15 for sure, and I'd be seriously looking at if I could find a 13" model with a 45W CPU and enough cooling not to throttle it under extended load.

Unless you work from home and never travel, your work environment is entirely remote VMs and cloud native apps reducing your computer to a dumb terminal, or have lengthy build times (10 vs 30s isn't worth the pain, 5 vs 15m would be) I'd recommend against a desktop as a primary machine because of the overhead in keeping two environments running and problems with not having all files synced between them.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
