I have always been confused on Apple's philosophy on this, maybe someone could please explain it to me. Aside from the larger screen space, there is no reason to buy a 17 inch MacPro. I have owned two Powerbook G4s and stay current with Apple news and know that besides resolution there is no difference in options or power that is availible. Almost all computer makers (Apple is better than others..lol) make it worth users while to buy their 17 inch computers by increasing performance. While I would like to see a 17 inch Macbookpro have a better GPU, what would really make sense is giving it the ability to have 4 gigs of memory, more hardrive space, (HEY, how about firewire). Would anyone else like to see Apple actually make the 17 inch MacbookPro worth the price? I just find it silly to have a computer that size if you could get identical performance in a 15 inch model with only slightly higher resolution.
