While iPhones are getting bigger, iPads are getting bigger, why the MacBooks are getting smaller?

Not certainly demanding a new 19“ something but we only want the old 17“ MacBook back. There are a lot of users that still prefer that good old screen size, and very much, when it comes to prefering a large iMac instead and therefore, would eagerly welcome what Apple abandoned. And so, for those who would like to and still prefer to, raise your voice by signing this petition. You can also simply share by copy-pasting the link below to any site or social-site, it would help, including you.

Wake up apple, we want the 17" macbook back

Hurry I'm getting older.....

I need a new 17" for my work: in this "fluid" era it's incredible Apple doesn't give me the possibility to have a REAL portable workstation to work everywhere (without needing mandatorily a second monitor!)
October 9
There's a LOT of pent-up demand for the 17" MacBook. I've upgraded my memory and changed the original hard drive to an SSD in my 2009 model, but that only takes you so far. Professionals need the extra screen space the 17" provides for work, and gamers would go crazy over a 17" retina display.
October 9
Why not 18" or 19"?! Make it a frameless screen and the outer dimensions will be the same as the last 17" + it will now be a thinner unit so it'll be a lighter device by that fact. And what would be extra cool is giving it the Jet Black finish of the Mac Pro which would do away with the goofy two-tone look they've had since they moved away from the all silver look.

    I agree completely, need a 17inch with matte screen and replaceable SSD and magnetic cord and many ports etc etc and the price is not the issue

    I still have my ppc based 17"er as well as a core2 duo one. Back in '12/13 Apple seems to have lost its way - no 17" nor desktop since then.
