So I've been waiting to purchase a new uMBP ever since WWDC. Until now, I was 100% set on getting the 17", due to the sheer resolution. I'm currently using a 15.4" Asus Notebook running windows, and the resolution is 1680 x 1050. I was surprised that the new 15" uMBP's only have a 1440 x 900 screen, a step down from what I have now. So I decided to go for the 17", which is exactly the same weight as my current 15", but offers massive screen real estate. Anyway, today I went to the apple store just to compare sizes. The 13" was a joke, no way I was going to be able to use photoshop on that *squints*. The 15" seemed great, although I do have qualms about the resolution. The 17", for whatever reason, DESPITE the fact that on paper, it's only an inch wider/longer, seemed MASSIVE. I don't know if it's because of the space for the speaker grilles, or because of the thinner black bezel, or what, but the thing felt like a...giant lunch tray, for a lack of better terms. Weight-wise it was absolutely fine, but surface area-wise just seemed so...big. Maybe it was just the massive 1080p screen resolution next to the puny 15 inch's 1440 x 900 that made it seem so large. Now I'm having second thoughts whether I should change my mind and bump down to a 15", sacrificing screen room, expresscard/esata, SATA 3.0, and an hour extra battery life. I'm a student and will most likely be carrying this around a lot, but I do love screen real estate and do frequent photoshop/etc. work. I'm now split between the 15" and 17" and just don't know what to do - sacrifice screen resolution for portability? For those new 17" owners out there, do you find that it just takes up too much desk space? Are there issues when it comes to portability?(not while flying, I fly rarely)What are your thoughts? EDIT: The decision has been made. 17" it is! Should be getting it next week!
