I waited for what seemed like forever for the update (like so many others) and I'm now unsure of what to do. My options are: New 15" 2.8ghz 320gb 7200rpm MBP cons: glossy screen (not that bad, my current one is glossy and I'm used to it) and no firewire 400 (is there such thing as a DV to FW800 cord?) 17" MBP, likely a refurb cons: not as fast as the 2.8ghz, big and heavy for traveling to school (but I don't bring it a whole lot) The price difference isn't crazy enough to sway me either way, so can you help me point out some pros and cons of each? God I feel like a newbie here, but I'm usually someone giving advice I'm a photography student, and despite the glossy display, am currently swaying towards the 15". This is because I'm no doubt going to buy a second display no matter which model I buy, which will be matte, so that helps to cancel out the glossy display issue.
