I have to admit it has taken me a bit to figure out if I made the right move from my 15" Matte 2.16 C2D. I can say after playing with it now for a few weeks I do really like it. The screen is awesome and driving my 30" cinema with PS and lots of pictures is a snap. The 128 Meg memory on my old laptop was very slow updating pictures and scanning through PS bridge. The size is great, yes it is bigger but since I do not take it out that much it's a non issue. I will be happier when my older laptop sells on ebay.. So it gets my 5 star rating.
