I'm considering replacing my desktop PC with a decent laptop.

Considering the discontinued MacBook Pro 17" Apple refurbished. Late 2011 early 2012 version.

I would upgrade the memory.

I like the extra real-estate that a 17" affords. It would also be powering a Dell 24" monitor.

Question: Is the 17" although discontinued, still worth my consideration?

Are the 5400 rpm drives a bottle neck in the system?

I have no interest in the new 15" Retina Mac as next to nothing on it can be upgraded.

I love my 17" MacBook... Only draw back is the weight of it... I am running Adobe Bridge, Photoshop Elements and Lightroom 4...
