17" MacBook Pro

The new 17″ MacBook Pro comes with:
2.16 Intel Core Duo processor,
256 MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1600
1 Gig DDR2
120 Gig 5400 SATA
8x double-layer SuperDrive
One FireWire 400
One FireWire 800
Front Row
iSight
6.8lbs

It is up to 5 times faster and 36% brighter than the 17″ powerbook.

Total price $2799 (student $2599) If you change the ram from 1 dimm at 1gig to 2 dimms at 512 each you save $100 ($90 student)

Cheapest price for the 17″ MacBook Pro: $2509 student.

I think at that price, I’m going with the 15″. You can get a Dell 17″ core duo for $1305.
