So I just got my 13" MBP back from applecare (it was in for cracking hinges). I bought a 17" early this week for the higher resolution but quickly realized that it is ginormous and defeats the purpose of a portable computer. I think I can do without the higher resolution. It seems the 13" just looks and feels right, but maybe I didnt get used to the 17". I never thought i'd say this but i think i will be returning the 17" and keeping the 13" until it dies. I might add that I have a hard time reading the tiny fonts on the 17"
