You can definitely wait. I have a friend who still uses his Titanium PowerBook as his primary computer at college and has no problems doing so. You don't need to be in any rush; just wait for the 17-incher. You'll be glad you did when you watch DVDs on that thing with Front Row and the Apple Remote.

What is the rush to "upgrade"? Its not as if your machine is anywhere near being "long in the tooth" and in any need of upgrading. I have had PowerBook G3's running Panther and updated, current apps with no problems. Your current machine should last you for a few years yet. I can understand the want to upgrade it, but there certainly isn't a desperate need for it.
If you are dead set on a 17" MacBook, I would suggest waiting. Nobody knows when or if one if even coming out or when, so sit tight. Your machine is more than adequate.
