    I'm sad that Apple decided to stop making the 17" Macbook Pro because I'd been planning to get one for such a long time. The new 15" MBP with Retina is impressive, but for me, it's no more useful. Having a 17" display is one of my most "wanted" features in a laptop, so I think I will still look to buy the current 17" model. Being new to Apple laptops and products though, I'm not sure where (which vendor) I should go to find the cheapest prices. Can you guys suggest?

    Ebay? MacMall? etc?

    Also, would it be good to buy it soon? Or should I wait to see if the price drops in the coming months or weeks since it's not the newest line anymore?

    eBay now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Apple-M...89566041?pt=Apple_Laptops&hash=item2c65fbdd59

    Might come down $100-$300 in a few months, but I think it's safe to purchase at that price. They'll hold their value for awhile.

    MacMall is offering savings of over $500+ on the 17" now.

    Early 2011 base model refurb with antiglare screen is now $1899 down from $1999. What's crazy is that the antiglare is $50 cheaper than the glossy ($1949), whereas it used to be $50 more expensive. For whatever reason, the price of the base glossy has not been lowered, yet.
