Hi, I know this has been posted over a million times but i really want to know what would work for my situation. I'm a Junior in HS hope to get into Med school soon. I also use the full arrary of the adobe suite and Final Cut Studio 2 for Video editing, Web Design, and Logo/Ad design. I'm Split between the 17's Full HD Screen and the 15's Portability. both will have the same specs: 2.6Ghz 2gb Ram 200Gb 7200 rpm drive Matte I can't wait until August because i'm leaving on a trip soon and when i come back it will be right back to school. Thanks for all your help.
