    Welcome to Mac-Forums, shadyboi.

    If portability is important and you will be taking your MBP back and forth on a daily basis, get the 15": I've read here and there that the 17" is pretty heavy and cumbersome to carry around.

    thanx man..portability will be important because my college will be like 600km from my home..of course i will be staying at a dormitory but it would be nicer to have sth smaller and powerfull in your back pack.And thanx for the welcoming.

    Hey guys..
    What do you think of how much would it be different carrying a 15inc mbp than a 17inch mbp...i really want the 17 inch one..but in the other hand i want it to be easy to carry...and i just cant decide....

    DO NOT get the 17 inch one. My friend has a 17 inch Acer laptop. It's HUGE. Not portable at all. Get 15 inch.
