This is ridiculous. The 17" MacBook Pro which should draw more battery power due to a larger display has better battery life over the 15" MBP. Also, both are the same size in height (1 inch) though now the 17" can fit a DL 8x burner? I thought Apple elimated the 8x DL drive due to not being able to fit it into the MBP's 1 inch design? What's up with this?
