    "The Macbook Air is the future of the laptop". That was what he said.

    No it isn't.

    A 17 or 19 inch Macbook Pro is the future of the laptop. Come on Apple!

    Time for what exactly?

    They'll never do it. Instead theyll tell us a 11 or 13 inch toy is what we need.

    17 inch didn't sell well, so no reason to see them bring it back; too heavy. a 19" would be even heavier. not happening

    It didnt sell well but people I know almost universally prefer it over the 15" Retina. They want real estate and ports. Now they have to buy a windows device to get the screen size.

    I think with the advent of the 20 inch tablets like the Vaio Tap 20 (which is portable and useable as a laptop with its own special bag) I think there'll be a lot of people in creative industries wanting the big screen machines.

    The 21 inch iMac is simply not portable - so Apple will continue to bleed the serious creative industry people who want portability and need the sweet spot of 17 - 21 inches of screen.

    Trust me, once you use a 17 incher you wont go back to 15.

    This topic has been beaten to death. Apple has stopped selling 17" laptops, like it or not that's the case. Please use one of the many existing 17" MBP threads - no need to create a new one.
