I am looking at getting a new macbook pro for school. I able to get either the 17 inch 2.8 Core 2 Duo macbook pro or the new 15 inch 2.4 i5 macbook pro. Size is not a big issue for me. Both machines are close in price so that is not an issue either the 17 inch is actually around $150 less. I was just curious to hear other people opinion on which would be better. I know the i5 is better but the graphic card on the 17 is double that of the 15 so I wasn't sure how much total performance difference there would be. I am using it for school while I am at Ohio State for graphic design.
