I really want a 17” MBP to use as I learn programming because I don’t see well but it looks like the last model of that size came out in 2011 and had issues. Is it still possible to use the 2011 17” MBP for programming in 2017? I’d use it for C# and .NET and would update the ram to 16gb. I’d only want it to last the year or so I’m in school since I can upgrade after that to a desktop with a big monitor. Or is it better to just find a decent 17” windows laptop?
