    im tempted to sell my early 17inch mbp for a 15mbp .. i love my
    mbp but i feel weird thinking about bringing it to school with me .. its really
    not heavy .. just kinda big .. i orginally bought it for video editing but i havent really had to edit anything big .. all the projects are small and there is only 3 .. so now im having second thoughts even though the laptop is 7 months old .. in mint condition though

    Get the 15"
    The 17" is a beast to drag around. I think the 15" is on the big side too.
    I only got the 15" because I need the Express card slot. I find it big to carry with me. I travel a lot to different locations and wish I had a smaller laptop most of the time.
    I use my 15 for editing, and I have edited quite a few HD projects on it.
    If one goes for a 13" you do need an external monitor

    17" MBP works fine for me. I move mine almost every day.

    It's no way "big", considering most PC 15" laptops are the same size and same weight as MBP 17".

    Perhaps someone needs to work out.

    i didnt say it was too heavy .. i kinda feel awkward bringing it to lectures at school cuz it is kinda big .. but i guess there is no point in selling it
