    Hi I wonder if you can advise.

    I am trying to decide between these 2 models as I can get them at the same price.

    The SR model is 2 months old though but is in perfect condition vs new penryn model?

    What would you buy if given the choice?

    well can you be specific what exactly you will be doing? Is more screen real estate important to you or portability ?

    I will be using all the iLife apps + Logic and will be portable maybe once every 3 months or so.

    You are the only one who can determine that based on your needs, Id just figure out whether you want a 15" model or a 17" and go with that.

    After discussing with friends and guys at apple, the 17'' hi res santa rosa is favored unanimously over the new penryn model. Most couldn't believe I was actually considering a 15'' over a 17'' hi res so 17'' it is!
