I'm having a REALLY hard time between just keeping my 2010 15" MBP, or replacing it with the i7 11". I've had the 11" i7 for a week and it is VERY nice. I've got an external monitor for the roughly 50% of the time I'm working. The shorter vertical size doesn't bother me. I just hate giving up that discrete Nvidia 320M and raw processing power (even though the 11" bested the 15" in exporting a 720p h.264 clip (2:39 vs 3:06). It's not rational I tell you!
