I just realized that the prices for base model on these two computers are the same! Should I buy the new 2016 Macbook or just wait til the new Macbook Pro is launched? Do you think the base price of the new Macbook Pro this year will be the same?

Hmm depends on what you value. If portability is the utmost then the rmb. But I think the mbp base is 128gb vs 256 on the rmb right?

This is literally my exact problem right now. I've ordered a new M5/512 MacBook for pickup today. I'm going to use it for about 10 days and see if it fits my needs. If I don't feel it's enough then I'll return it and wait for the new Pros at WWDC.

I went for the 13" Retina when weighing up both options last year based on the port availability and the keyboard.

I don't regret it. Unless you really really need an ultra portable that weighs less than the 13" (which isn't heavy by any stretch), IMHO it doesn't make sense. But some people need/want that, so figure out if you fit in that boat.
