question is. should i go for an 17'' or 15'' macbook pro 2011 price difference is 200 bucks. points of doubt 17'' might be to big/heavy? 17'' has higher resolution. ill be working on video projects so 1920x1080 would be nice... ill be traveling each day for 3 hours with it. (for school) and will be working on location with it. ill be running fullscreen apps such as FCP, Nuke, Maya, Aftereffects, Photoshop. in other words. heavy ****. i was going for the 15'' but the 200,- difference in price makes me doubt my decision when thinking about the resolution and screen size. anyone has any thoughts on this and/or experience? at home ill be using an ACD. screen size wont matter there. points of interest: does the 17'' stay cooler? off topic// does clapping the screen down increase or decrease heat? will something such as the bookarc increase its heat for being unfolded? or will it decrease heat because the bottom is conducting heat to air? also considering the usage of the screen is off in an bookarc. thanks!
