Actually, yes I am. I've been using 17" laptops for over 12 years now, and really don't want to change - it suits me perfectly. I haven't had a desktop for almost as long... If I can have an option to buy a built to order, state-of the-art 17" MBP every three years or so, I'd pay $5,000 for it, never mind $3,000: my current one wasn't much cheaper than that in September 2010, plus all the upgrades - it's most likely well over 5 grand by now anyway ...

I'm afraid, you're right - and that means I have to re-think my setup, most likely 27" iMac and 15" MBP ... I don't like changes
