Justin McGee thinks the world could use another 17-inch Mac notebook
For most people, the 15-inch Macbook Pro model is probably big enough, but just having the option to get a bigger screen may make a lot of people take a second look at the MacBook lineup. 15-inches is a great size for most people, but just two more inches gives people a lot more screen real estate to work with.
I bought one of the first 17-inch models, kept it for six and a half years, then sold it for one third the original price. Great machine.
