I know a million people must ask this question, but here is a million and one. I am looking to buying the new MBP. I currently have the 2.0 Ghz 15" MBP. I am in the military and every 3 years I buy a new laptop then send my old one down to the kids. I was looking at the 17" with the 3.06 Ghz processor. I was looking at the price though and it is $250 for the processor upgrade. I use my MBP for gaming since it allows me to game while deployed or stuck in some god forsaken airport. I have the money already set aside for the 3.06, but don't want to buy it only to be told it wasn't cost effective. I am also upgrading from the 15" to the 17". I like the better graphics on the 17", 3 USB ports (2 drives me crazy), and the 8 hour battery life compared to 7. Problem being is I am stuck in Germany and I went out in search of a 17" to make sure I wanted the bigger laptop, but the stores here only had the 15". I was hoping to hear from anyone who went from the 15" to the 17" or someone that decided to take the 3.06 compared to the 2.8 and their reasons or thoughts. Thanks in advance.
