    my lovely Hp laptop is already starting to break down and its only a few months old

    i was looking at getting the 17" one for the screen size and you can get the optional upgrade to runa higher resolution

    does anyone own one? how do you like it? what type of battery life are you getting etc??

    I really like mine, it's my first mac too. other than an accidental wipe of my external hard drive, it's been really good to me :hsd:

    i haven't really paid too much attention to the battery life though - it's good enough that i don't have to make sure i'm close enough to an outlet all the time.

    i'm tempted, but can't help but wondering if the next rev might see LED backlighting on the 17" displays as well.

    Yeah it's a shame that they couldn't put LEDs into the current refresh. Maybe the technology isn't advanced enough to handle such a large screen.

    i remember reading some where (macrumors maybe?) that the reason they didn't release the 17's with LCD was due tot he lack of panels.

    i wouldn't mind getting a 17, but from using mates 17" powerbooks before they are a little bit too big for what i need.
