    Well its time to update my notebook, and I am not quite sure which one I want to get. I obviously know the MBP is the future for Apple, but I am a little worried about some of the reports on its performance with Photoshop.

    I currently have a 12" PB, but not that I have gotten more in to web design, I feel I need a larger workspace. So I am torn between the MBP and the 17" PB.

    What would you all suggest?

    okay, now for serious then,
    i'd get the MBP 15" the resolution is so much better than the 12" (1024*768 compared tot 1440*900) and from what i read on this forum the MBP handles Photoshop better under Rosetta than the G4 Powerbooks do.
    And the fun part is that when Photoshop gets native you'll feel a new speedboost.

    Does anyone have any experience or would recommend the refurb'ed models?
