Is the only CON with the 17" the portability? What else can you say you don't like about it. I'm torn on whether to get the 15" or the 17". I will be doing alot of video editing, and also working with digital photos on my new laptop. But after reading about the [lines] problem with the 15", I have now shifted my sights on a new 17". (I get 10% apple laptops w/company discount) Should I get the 17" over the 15" if I can afford it right now? Also, if I were to get the 17", should I definitely get the 7200, 100gb hard drive? I think I will upgrade the RAM on my own later. What do you think?
