17" MacBook Pro

Since I have been trying to decide on a new Mac system to replace my current PC I have looked at some of the online retailers and found that there are 17" MacBook Pros out there for sale. I know that Apple no longer markets a 17" MacBook Pro so I assume these are all older models - either new (never sold) or refurbished.

I was wondering why the 17" model disappeared. Was it too expensive? Or did it have technical problems? Or is Apple having a hard time upgrading the Retina screens to that size? Since I would like a larger laptop (my current PC is 15") the 17" screens are appealing but I don't think I would want to buy something that no longer is available from Apple. But I have been wondering why it is no longer being sold. Does anyone know?

Thanks.
