While Apple grandly updated their notebook line to the new unibody design, the 17-inch MacBook Pro, Apple's granddaddy of mobile computing, was left behind. Now, the 17-inch model joins its siblings—with promising bonus features.
With nothing to scale this image, it's nearly impossible to tell the new 17-inch MBP from the 13- or 15-inch unibody macs. From the outside, it's the same thing, only bigger. At first it's a little intimidating to see such a large, unadorned block of metal. But at 6.6 lbs, it's actually not as heavy in your hands as you'd expect. And at .98-inches in stature, it's only ever so slightly thicker (.03 inches) than the other two MacBooks.
