I am going to wait until the MBP updates, but I really want to get a 17 in. But I am also afraid I could regret it to some degree and would like opinions. Here is what I am using it for and why I have leaned toward the 17 inch model. 1. I am a photographer/ graphic artist and would like a lot of work room 2. I will be using it as my only computer/ monitor at my office and figure a bigger screen will be nicer. 3. It will be my only Mac for awhile and want to have a large screen to enjoy the OSX experience on the go. Now I know some of you will say "sounds like you have already made up your mind". But truth is that though I believe all of those reasons point to a 17 in. I could be wrong and would just like to hear some really good points as to why I should or should not get the 17 in. Also, if this affects anything, I am not a heavy traveler (maybe 3 or 4 trips a year to nearby areas). So travel use is not my goal. Just portability with my computer experience. I essentially want a portable desktop.
