Last of a great line. Get 'em while you can.
This being the last 17" MacBook Pro made it a no brainer. 15", while convenient, lacks screen real estate and (for me) is claustrophic - the Retina, while it can emulate 1920x1200, works too hard for that and obviously everthing is smaller. It's also the last machine that will run 10.6.8 which is important for me due to legacy software (and 10.7.vista is too annoying and slow). It's an excellent alternative to a desktop, especially with the Thunderbolt port, although the ports are inconveniently close together. The build is excellent and nothing else comes close. Unfortunately the speakers are softer with thinner sound than the pre Unibodies. Don't forget they will run 16GB ram and the burner can be replaced with a hard drive or SSD, and the main drive bay will take a 6G SSD. Weirdly the charger and laptop itself stay much cooler than the pre unibody models. Read full review
