I know this has been noted in the comments for the news story, but just wanted to separate this out. When a 15" has the CPU and HD matched to the 17", the price for the 15 is actually $100 more. $2899 15" vs $2799 17" Then you get a bigger screen, extra USB, 8x SD, and FW800. I know most of those are impossible to put on the 15" (the SD particularly). But still, I mean, what gives? Just seems like anybody looking at the pricing between the two will get the 17". If you really need mobility you use the 12", or you'll wait for the 13.3" widescreen Intel replacement. Hauling a 15 or 17 to work isn't that much of a difference to me. I mean the 17 only weighs 6.8lbs. That's less than some 15" laptops. Anyway, point is, why would you pay more for something with the same power and less features, since the mobility difference between 15 and 17 is not nearly as great as 12 and 15. *EDIT* clicking on the link for the 17 on the front page of Apple takes you to specs for the 15, my bad. It is in fact 6.8 as WildCowboy points out. Still light though.
