15" or 17" Macbook Pro for FCS2?

Which one would you get? Any important differences when running FCS2?

Even with the 17" the multi screens in FCP are quite small, I would go for the 17" and add a 20" second monitor for dual screen editing.

I have the 17" one for mobile editing and a 24" i-mac with 20" 2nd screen for home use.
