So, "very few" = "nobody"?

Several people I work with use Macbook Pro 17s at work. Guess they're hosed now, just like the OP.

I own a 17" Macbook Pro. I don't consider myself "hosed" as far as upgrades go.

While I would like a thinner 17", the fact is that with the retina display you get a lot more pixels, and pixels were the main reason I bought a 17" laptop in the first place.

Heh...I forgot. One of the reasons I bought a 17 over a 15 was to get a numeric keypad. I forgot even Apple's 17 doesn't have one.
