Of course the one laptop from Apple that avoided updates last time around needs an update tomorrow at Macworld. It missed the last go around while Apple needed to work out bugs. According to AppleInsider the 17" Macbook Pro is all ready and is going to be announced at Macworld.
That's good news for those shopping for the large screen laptop. Well Maybe not. If the rumors are true this new 17" Macbook Pro will have a fixed battery inside? What?!?!?! A fixed battery??!? Crazy. It could be true and AppleInsider seems pretty confident in their sources but I still think it is crazy. The fixed battery in the Macbook Air is not a popular feature and carrying over the same mistake into the largest laptop in Apple's line seems like a ridiculous move to me. IT would undoubtedly make the 17" Macbook Pro model sell less as users moved to other similar solutions with a removable battery.
Something more reasonable of course is that the new 17" Macbook Pro is expected to have the unibody aluminum construction like its younger cousins and some graphics updates via NVIDIA.
