17" MBP?

Will they ever make these again?

One can always hope. I bought the latest 17" model at the Apple refurbished store online while I still had the opportunity.

No, I can't imagine them making it again. I was a diehard 17" fan until I got my new 15" retina macbook pro. You can adjust the resolution on this monster to 1920x1200 if you want and it won't lose quality. Sure the screen is a bit smaller physically, however you *can* work with it.

not if you are getting one for a mostly blind user that needs the text of everything to be scaled up pretty far.

Do they need a laptop? If not a mac mini plus a cheap 27" display at 1920x1080 would work great.

if it does happen, I don't see happening until 2014 at the earliest.

Thats basically what he's got now, save it's a 32" TV, but he wants something portable.

Gotcha. Just checked my 15" retina and it goes to 1024x640. That's super huge.

Otherwise you're in for a refurb 17" but then you miss out on USB3.

Let me ask you this then,......

If Apple made a 17" retina MacBook Pro, would you then be a diehard fan of that,....?

I would consider it heavily for my next machine. I usually trade up every 2-3 years so it could happen. Although I'd really like a retina 27" display first.
