    Hey guys, help me out here...

    I have a 17" Merom MBP, and I'm allowed to get a new MBP. I love my 17, but find it a little big sometimes (I do like the space because I do a lot of Illustrator and FCP work).

    If I got the 17, I would get the high def resolution. If I got the 15, I would get the 2.6 upgrade.

    Does anyone out there have the high res? Is it good? Is it worth it?

    Get the 15" if you don't like to lug a large laptop around. You can chuck the screen for a 15" 1920x1200 later (read about the hacks online)

    Also, LED backlighting is now standard on all 15" MBP's. Honestly if the 17" is to bulky for you, get a 15" and buy a nice monitor to hook the 15" up to.
