New 15" vs New 17" - Mac Portable

Hi, Am I correct that the only differences between the two machines are 0.08 GHz, and screen size/resolution? Are there any other little differences that I might be overlooking? Port-wise are they all the same? Thanks, -Will...

    Default New 15" vs New 17"

    Hi,

    Am I correct that the only differences between the two machines are 0.08
    GHz, and screen size/resolution?

    Are there any other little differences that I might be overlooking?
    Port-wise are they all the same?

    Thanks,
    -Will

    The 17 has a larger capacity battery, so I'd expect it to run longer.
    However, but the spec for battery run time is the same.

    Well, the bigger screen is more power-hungry!

    Generally true, but I'm sure there's a CPU throttling mechanism of
    some sort. Just don't run SETHome or Dnet and the CPUs should be
    fine.

    In order to handle the faster processor, various features of the
