Well I am getting ready to order a new Macbook Pro soon but I am not sure which size screen that I want. I do know that I want the MBP so please don't say that I don't need it. I am using a 17" dell laptop now but I was thinking that since I will be going to college this fall that having the slightly smaller screen might make it easier to use in class. I have heard so many bad things about the new LED screens that I am swaying more to the 17" screen since there are no problems with them and the footprint is not much bigger at all. If I order the 17" I will be getting the high resolution glossy screen. The other advantages I see from having the 15" screen is that it is easier to find a case and backpack for it to fit into where if I get the 17" it is a little harder to find a backpack.
