    So the 16 inch MBP is rumored to come out soon with thin bezels. Will Apple also update the 13 inch with this form factor? (thinner bezels)

    They'll either make the current 13inch models smaller or dump 13 inch screens altogether and keep the current form factor and go with 14 inch screens. Personally I hope they go 14 because making the current 13s smaller means a smaller keyboard.

    Ya that would be cool—do you think they’ll do that at the same time they update the 16”? Rumors don’t seem to mention a 13/14”..

    My guess is they're not adjusting the footprint of the machines. Just expanding the screens to fill the current bezels, which would equate to 16 inch computers instead of 15 and 14 inch computers instead of 13. But I may just be under-thinking what they're actually doing. I personally dont see the point of having a 15 and a 16 on the market and I dont think they should shrink the current 13 inch chassis because it could result in a smaller keyboard.
