Mac Pro or Macbook Pro

I'm hoping to buy my first mac in the next couple of months before I go to uni. I would like to know your opinion of whether there are significant advantages of the Xeon processors in the Mac pro's. I will be mainly using CS3 Design Premium and Lightroom for photo editing,(images from Nikon D200), along with all the standard programs.

The portablity of the laptop would be nice, but not at the expense of significant speed. I am hoping to get either a top spec 17" Macbook Pro with 3Gb of RAM, of a 2.66Ghz Mac Pro with 4Gb of RAM and the standard graphics card. I will be getting an external 20" or 23" monitor with both setups.

I was hoping you could tell me whether there is significant differences in the running speed of CS3 on these to setups.
I would be happy if you could help.
