Apple appears to have quietly discontinued the 17″ MacBook Pro today amid the flurry of updates and announcements at WWDC today. Apple’s newly updated MacBook Pro product page mentions the new Retina Display-equipped 15″ Pro, as well as the new 13″ and 15″ Pro’s, but is silent on the 17″.

The 17″ PowerBook G4 was first released in January of 2003 and has received a number of updates over the years, including transitions to the Intel-equipped 17″ MacBook Pro and receiving an update to the current unibody construction as well. Research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in April that the 17″ MacBook Pro would soon be discontinued due to weak sales.
