I wanted to get the 17" MBP as well as a 23" Cinema Display used for school.

However now that the new 15" are out i see that there are some major performance differences. Is it worth it to get the 17 still or are they going to be making a new 17" that will match the 15". Faster ram, CPU, Unibody?

Most likely they will make a 17" version.

Wait if you really want a 17". I think the 15" is good enough, but that's just me. I've seen my friend lug around her 17" MBP and it's quite funny.
