Alright to start it off I'm not getting an MBP until the refresh, but I was just wondering what you guys think. The set up I have at the moment is a 15 high-end with glossy hi-res and Applecare. =$2648 The 17 with Applecare =$2848 Now I don't have a problem carrying more weight or whatever, and I like more screen real estate. Are there any other negatives to having a 17 over a 15? Also, if I bought a 17, how long would I have to return it and switch for a 15?
