Hey everybody, I would like to get some advice from some seasoned laptop veterans or those who have experience using 17" laptops and/or visual professionals.
I have decided between two models of MacBook Pro, But this question is universal regardless of platform.
Which one of these two should I take?
The only difference between the two is that the 17" has a 1920 x 1200 full HD display and the 15" has a 1680 x 1050 resolution display. The trade off is weight, with the 17" being a whole pound heavier. The reason why I added 8 GB of RAM was so they would be relatively equal in price, but I would end up putting 8 GB down the road if I got the 17" anyway.
Other than that spec wise, the two machines are equal, same battery life, processor, GPU and SSD.
The machines will usually be at my place about 90% of the time, on my lap because I don't have enough space for a desk in my small apartment.
I will use it mostly for web creation, surfing, email, a few games, watching movies (internal display), and eventually photography.
I was thinking does the extra pixels trump the added weight? I guess I'm thinking more from the visuals aspect in that regard.
Right now I'm 50/50 and I would like some opinions from you guys (and gals).
Thanks in advance!
