    there are reports that apple is going to discontinue the 17-inch model. it is a foolish thing to do so. anyway, as the title said, i wonder if the 17-inch model's battery lasts longer than the 15-inch.on apple's website said they both get up to 7h. the processor are the same, so as all the other specs except for the display.for the 17', there is going to be more space,probably for battery. is this true? i looked up for pictures and found that the space was kinda taken by the logic board....:confused:

    thanks for help:)

    The 17" modell has a bigger battery: 95 Wh vs. 77,5 Wh in the 15" modell.

    It also has a bigger screen, so it probably evens out.
