    Are there any noticeable differences between the 15" and 17" MacBook Pro 2.8GHz?

    I mean performance-wise, obviously the screen size is a difference

    Nothing huge.
    17in - 1920x1200 Resolution, 8 hour battery, Expresscard slot.
    15in - 1400x900 Resolution, 7 hour battery, SD Card slot.
    Everything else is basically the same.

    The 17inch still has the express card slot while the 15 has an SD slot. Other than that the 17inch allows you to upgrade to higher speed CPUs. Oh the 17inch has an 8 hour battery life instead of the 7 hour that the 15inch has.
