Which Mac for HD video editing and photography?

I'm going to buy my first mac soon, was going to go straight for the 17" macbook pro, but i don't know if its overkill for my needs.

I want to be able to edit hi res photos, edit and make HD video (inc video conversion). I wont be playing games really as i have a PS3. I would be streaming music and videos from the macbook too, via airplay.

Would like macbook to be future proof for a few years also.

    I feel your pain,but i would highly recommend that you get the macbook pro because it is built precisely for such labor intensive applications such as you have described above it is better to have more power than less so the mac book pro with Aperture 3 & Final Cut Studio will more that satisfy your needs for HI Res Photo Editing & HD Video Conversion.
