Till now it seems that the 17" has fewer problems compared to 15" MBP. But then the fact is that there are way fewer 17" than 15". If you have the money to buy a 17" MBP; Then My advice would be to wait for a couple of weeks and get the response from the 17" owners. You`ll pretty soon have an idea wether it has as much trouble as the 15". I dont think you`d get a 17" PB very cheap. even a used one will cost quite a lot. So go for intel one only if there arent too many -ve reviews bout it.chanwaiming3 said:I need a new laptop desperately and want a 17"... Should i get a G4 or the new Intel? I heard that I should till second generation comes out.
If I should get a G4, should I get it used or brand new?
