Apple might kill 17-inch MacBook pro

Predictions coming from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo indicate Apple may do away with the 17-inch MacBook pro in favor of a hybrid MacBook Pro that would combine the performance of the Pro with the portability of the MacBook Air. Kuo’s predictions stem from sales estimates that predict the 17-inch MacBook Pro will sell only 50,000 units compared to 1.5 million units of the 13-inch model and .5 million units of the 15-inch model. Given those estimates, it might make sense to kill the larger, less popular MacBook Pro (although you might consider less units are sold given the model’s higher sticker price). Even if the predictions are true, we’re not really sure what a hybrid model would look like. A 17″ Air would be way too flimsy. A 15-inch MacBook Pro is already more portable in comparison. Although, a solid state laptop with a larger 15″ display would certainly be tempting. (Of course, it’s probably not feasible given the higher cost of solid state drives.) What do you think? Will Apple kill one of the MacBook Pro models?
