Alright. Here are my thoughts thus far on my 17" Macbook Pro. Considering it cost me about 800 dollars to upgrade from my 17" PowerBook (1.67- Gen. one) I'm a little torn. On one hand, the extra screen resolution seems to fit the display size much better. It's noticeably faster, and the extra ram and larger hard drive for the same price helps. I enjoy the built in iChat. And, the magnetic power cord has literally saved my computer's life many, many time. However, in the end, if right now, I could have $800 in my pocket and my old 17" powerbook... I think I'd go for it. -AppleIntelRock PostScript: I've had it since Aug.
