    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.

    Why did you ask yourself a question and then type out the answer? You could have just done that in your head.

    If you have a 30 inch cinema display why did you decide to opt for the 17 inch out of interest?

    Did you get i5 or i7? And why did you choose it over the other?

    I just received my 17" i7 AG MBP today and I freakin' love it, every bit of it, couldn't be happier, to me the resolution and the speaker quality compared to the 15" is totally worth the extra size, not to mention I am coming from a 17" laptop that was heaps larger, so this is a huge improvement in size still.

    Good question.

    One reason I got the 17" for only $50 more than a I7 15 ag.
    The other reason, why not. I spend a lot of time doing other things than my pro photography so the real-estate is great. When I work on photos I use the cinema or size and quality.

    Why did you spend bandwith with that reply?
