    I noticed that at the same resolutions, the 17" MBP 2.2 seems to be performing faster than the 15" 2.2. They are listed with the same hardware, but the 17" is able to process things faster? Why is this?

    It may be able to dissipate heat better and therefore take better advantage of turbo boost. However, in most cases, this difference is miniscule.
