Anyone else thinking of going back to the MacBook Pro?

    I purchased over the Thanksgiving Holiday a 2.4 Macbook Unibody lured by the "Pro-like" features in the less expensive, smaller form factor. Now I am starting to second guess my purchase and feeling like my 13.3 is a little cramped.

    I have been seeing on the refurb front some 2.5 250GB 512VRAM MBP's for $1499 or even the MBP Unibody for $1699 and am feeling the draw back to the larger machine.

    Anyone else feeling a little remorseful and questioning their decision?

    i'm in a little different of a situation
    I'm in the market for a new iMac, but I tend to feel the need for a portable (which came to me one day when a storm continued to knock out our electricity). with a notebook + an EVDO card in the ExpressCard/34 slot , I'd continue to be able to be online and up /running
    so my focus has now shifted to MBP's (new or old)

    which brings me to my question:

    with only $200 separating the two, would you go for the "classic" or the "unibody" ? and why ?

    the 8600GT in the old one gives me pause as to it's long term reliability
    the glossy screen of the new onne gives me pause, but I'll mostly be using this in a controlled lighting environment and not outdoors in sunlight
