So ever since my 15" MBP was stolen back in early '07, I have been using my old iMac G5 and it's been a huge pain since I am out and about all the time for work. I did get by with my emails and calendar stuff through Verizon Wireless. By the way, I CAN'T WAIT TO LEAVE VERIZON. The good news in all this is that I'm ready to buy a new laptop again. And I'm going to buy the 17"! All my Powerbooks, Macbook Pro in the past were 15-inchers and I know that some revisions tend to have a set of their own problems. Does the current 17" model have any widespread, known problems that users have been complaining about? I remember looking over the 1st revision 17" MBP at a store and it had very loose screen hinges, causing the laptop's screen to slam shut when carrying it at an angle. Also, I read something about batteries blowing up on the 17s? I remember that happening with other models in the past too, but my question is mainly about the CURRENT revision. Sorry for all the questions, but lastly, is anyone familiar with both versions of the current 17" model? I'm talking about regular 17" screen vs. the LED Hi-Res screen. Does the LED make much of a difference and what is the advantage of a hi-res screen for users who do a lot of multi-tasking? I run my own business as well as working at a hospital so it's a whole meshup of things that I need to deal with everyday. The only thing I can think of is that I'll have more screen space on the hi-res screen? Thanks in advance for your help guys.
