Checking the apple store, my favorite model, is still being sold! http://store.apple.com/us/buy-mac/macbook-pro How much more do you think apple is going to sell the classic 08' design style? I bought mine last year with the I7. It's a beast. Upgraded mine to 16 gigs and SSD which is awesome (can't do that on the retina and air ones). I use the ethernet port and superdrive daily! (for IT and ripping CDs at high quality!). It has all the ports you'd ever need. it has 6 more ports tun the new macbook! Why aren't more people recommending this? It's awesome. I hope I never have to let it go.
