March 6, 2009 (Computerworld) It took Apple Inc. a while to finally get around to updating the 17-in. MacBook Pro, but the wait was more than worth it.
Apple started rolling out its carved-from-solid-aluminum laptops a year ago, with the incredibly thin MacBook Air. Then, in October, it revamped its MacBooks and the 15-in. MacBook Pro, moving them to the “unibody” manufacturing process (and moving the MacBooks decidedly upscale).
Now, finally, comes the Big Daddy of all Apple laptops, the top-of-the-line 17-incher that has been made truly drool-worthy for professionals who need every bit of computing power and speed while on the go. Of course, speed, size and innovation don’t come cheap.
