Agreed. I use my 17" Pro every day for graphics and photography. I have no issue with "lugging" it around because I want the extra screen real estate. I don't really need to buy a monitor since it's a nice balance of the size I like and portability. It works for me as a professional. Anyway, I'd hate to see the 17" go, but all of this is rumors and we'll see what the real deal is next week.
