First off, this isn't going to be a wait or buy now post. I've already decided to buy asap. I like the MBP's right now and am happy with their current specs. My question is aimed at those who own 15" or 17" MBP's. As I said I plan to purchase my first mac soon, and I have it narrowed down. Despite my sig, I keep switching from the high end 15" to the standard spec'd 17". The only difference between those two as far as price is 200$ so that's no issue there to go for the 17". Yet what I want to know, and hear experiences about from you, is are you happy with the screen size you choose? I am attending college for web design (the art side of web design, I'm going for a BFA), so I will be using adobe applications quite often. I've worked shop on a 15" toshiba, until I sold it cuz I'm done with Windows, and never had an issue as far as work space. The resolution was 1280x800 so it was your standard 15" screen. I considered the 17" MBP because of the bigger screen, thus more work space, but now I'm wondering if it's really going to be worth it. One of the things I'm looking for is, battery life, portability, work space, and performance. So if anyone can help me decide, and please don't just say go to "Apple Store" and mess around, because you are so limited on those machines there to make a proper decision. And, because I've already done that. Thank you in advance.
