    If they made a 19 inch MBP I would buy it.

    I think they would sell a lot to moms at home, designers, and anyone who wanted the extra space.

    Once you go 17 you won't go back. Even 15 is too small.

    Also having a 19 inch in a cafe would attract a lot of attention from the moms and people there. For a single guy this is very good.

    What do you all think?

    The 17" is too big if you ask me, 19" for a laptop is just obscene. Some desktop monitors are that big, hell the small iMac screen is only 2.5" larger than that. If you need a 19" screen you either should:

    a) Buy an iMac
    b) Buy an external monitor and just plug your laptop into it.

    because carrying around a 19" laptop is just ridiculous if you ask me.

    that would be huge. i really see no point for a laptop screen to be that big. as it is the 17" MBP is a beast in size and weight i wouldn't want something even bigger.

    Half the time I feel my 15" MBP is too large. For an expansive screen I love my 27" iMac.

    And yet the 17 inch lovers cannot get enough. They wouldn't go back to the 15 inchers.

    And yet the people said before the 17 inch was released that it would be too big. And yet the people spoke when the 17 inch was released and bought it and then proclaimed that the 15 inch was not big enough for them.

    And yet Dell and HP sold tens of thousands of 20+ inch monsters that weighed 15-20 lbs. Breitbart himself used the Dell M2010.

    Mac could most certainly release one that is 19 inches and weighs around 8.5 lbs. If you are a girly man that's too big but people would pay for the extra screen space. Battery life at 5 hours on normal use and its a winner.

    The Alienware M18x is a nice machine and a Macbook Pro wouldn't have the same specs so could have extra battery life and a better weight.

    Might as well just carry around a 21.5" iMac with you. 17" is already too big.

    If you need extra screen space, then use an external monitor. I mean, how often would you really need that extra space when you're away from your home base?

    19" is crazy talk for a laptop. You want something that big go get a iMac. This is just my opinion but laptops should be small and easily portable. I say 15" is the max I would want though I think 13" is perfect.

    i love you mac people
    3.5 inches is the perfect size for a phone right?
    5.3 inches galaxy note and 7 inches galaxy tab are too big right?
    until mac make a bigger one and then its the perfect size
    like in 2006 17 inches is too big right?
    then they release the 17 inch ibook
    and suddenly 17 inches is the perfect size
    ive read the posts, people here love their 17 inchers
    they wont go back to their 15 inchers
    so please dont convince me that 17 is too big
    it isnt
    why would dell and hp sell tens of thousands of 20 inchers if 17 is too big?
    why would alienware sell tens of thousands of 18 inchers if 17 is too big?

    i wanna hear from people who love 17 and would go bigger
    not from people who think that a 13 or 12 inch toy is enough (it might be for them)
    i started with a 7, then went to a 10, then a 12, and now i know i want 17 or bigger
    the 17 is only a little heavier and larger footprint than the 15
    people love their 17s

    I agree that 19" would be way too big for a 'portable'. When I want more real estate I use an external monitor on my MBP.

    19" is ridiculous for a notebook. It kills the idea of being portable. You either want portability or you want screen real estate. 19" fails in both categories. A better approach is to get a 15" MBP and use a nice big 25-30" external display when you can.

    OP: Companies have done 20" laptops before and look how far they got. Those models are dead and gone. People would be better off getting an external screen at that point.

    They want the bigger screen because of the higher resolution. That's the point of the bigger laptops. After 1920x1200 on the 17", it's not really feasible to go to 2560x1600 without some iOS-style retina display scaling.

    Also, I would love a 4" iPhone having had a 4.3" Droid X. So, nice try.

    I love my MBP 17. It is also as big of a laptop as I think is practical. Anything bigger would likely only be a curiosity with a very limited market audience.

    I dont know that seems a bit excessive to me. Also it probably wouldn't sell enough considering how much the 17in sells. I see way more 13in pros/Airs now then any other laptop. But this is just from my college/friends.

    Th 17" MBP is already one of the most expensive laptops you can buy. I can't imagine the what the pricing would be for a 19" version. People are looking more for a protably device and something less expensive which is why the 13" sell so well

    because you can't think different?
    or because you are offended that i spoke out against the mac gods and asked for a bounty of bigger riches?
    19" is only too small for girly men

    no because both your threads could of easily been combined into the same thread. You ask to be conviced a 17" is big enough...wait 2 minutes, make a new thread waiting a 19"

    There's a difference to thinking differently and thinking logically. I think even the biggest of men would look foolish with a 19" laptop.

    now this is just plain wrong
    you ought to read a little better
    the other thread is about 17 vs 17 inchers
    nothing more
    its about a battle of "equals" one with better specs, and half the price, the other with a nicer looking os and case
    this thread is about johnny ivey using his head and making a 19 incher
    because plenty of people would buy it, look at the hp dragon and the m2010 dell
    they are now both around 3-5 years old
    people want the i7 and dual ssd goodness and dual graphics card goodness
    and they want their big screens
    sound good?

    It's not the size that matters, it's how you use it.

    Or are you trying to compensate for something?

    2003 powerbook
    before that people said 17 was too big
    they sell thousands of them
    they are so light now (sub 7 lbs) people will carry them
    they are not for the girly men
    so now they can make a 19 incher surely

    Says who?
    There has never been a 17" iBook, which was introduced in 1999 and discontinued in 2006. Get your facts straight.
