The changes to this 17-inch system are minor compared to the radical overhaul of the 15-inch MacBook Pro models. The 17-inch configuration features the same enclosure and processor as the spring 2008 update, instead of the unibody design that the rest of the MacBook Pro line features. But Apple upped the shipping RAM to the maximum 4GB and boosted the hard-drive capacity to 320GB. The 17-inch MacBook Pro now comes with the 1920 x 1200 screen, whether in standard glossy or optional matte form.

Price when rated: $2,799
