    I already changed what I said but yeah, only 3 years so far. I guess they gonna release 16.5 MacBook Pro ONLY for this year. Intel is a problem but AMD is ready because MacOS Mojave indicates that 4 Navi GPU is already included in MacOS.

    Thats awesome. Maybe smaller bezels with the footprint of a current 15 inch.

    Will Apple still offer the 15 inch? Seems a bit redundant to have both 15 and 16 inch laptops (16.5 is a bit more forgivable!).

    Carrying a 17 is easier than carrying a smaller one and a separate 17” monitor.

    Some of us need the real estate for bigger fonts...

    If the all new design is coming out 1 year early it proves that that the criticism about the current design has been heard by the apple design team. In other reason I can think of that would necessitate this rollover this early. Interesting...

    It'll be so beautiful and even thinner than ANY previous Macbook Pros.

    But watch it start with 8GB and a 128 SSD as the base configuration. It'll also ship without a physical keyboard, because courage!

    I wish they would make it a 17 inch display and give it proper cooling. I would turn mine in to get one.

    Awesome. Would imagine they take cooling into consideration for a device they must expect would be widely adopted by pro power users.

    But there is no information about 13 and 15 inches so I doubt that.

    Picked up the new gold Macbook Air, $200 off over President's Day weekend. I don't see why anyone needs a pro anymore!

    Please make it a little thicker - so it can breathe and all the high end components, can leave thermal difficulties behind.
    .......A non glossy screen would be ideal for any professional or anybody serious about their photos.
    ........Also, just use the keyboard from the old 17 inch.

    Unfortunately, with Apple's recent history of port reduction, mag-safe removal, toy keyboards, thinner, lighter, bendable, etc. I just can't get too excited until we see how far Apple goes to ruin it. You know the Cook factor, cheaper manufacturing, more profit.

    Butterfly keyboard sucks. Who designed it?
    Totally doubt about nVidia GPU
    Matte screen is better but I have no idea why Apple is still using a glossy panel for?
    Mac is not user upgradable. Maybe with Mac Pro but not on MacBook series
    Mag safe is great but will they gonna bring it back?
    Laptop always throttle no matter how thick it is and how better it is.
    Apple pencil... hmmm perhaps they gonna make a touchpad instead of the keyboard?

    Tell us about it in a year or 18 months, like to know if this enthusiasm stays.

    This is exciting, and 1000% unexpected.

    Hopeful for a new keyboard.

    Keep in mind though, current version is 15.4" so if this comes out at 16", it will barely be any different.

    This is most likely the 15” with a 2:1 aspect ratio screen.

    I doubt it will be a replacement for the 17”, which will probably still have vastly more horizontal screen space.

    Gosh, I hope :apple: fix the keyboard and do something about cooling. 17” laptop screens are the new 15.6” so this 16” sounds viable.

    It will likely be wider (2:1 aspect ratio).

    OMG. If they changed the keyboard design, this is going to be a must buy for me.

    I was wondering about that, are they possibly leaving 16:10 (I think that's what they currently use, or is it 4:3?) behind?

    and don't forget the Firewire 400/800 port, CD/DVD, the Floppy Drive and a 56k modem, I would also like a clear cover that slides off and has some cool custom patterns I can put under it like my PowerBook 1400 has!

    Oh wait I can do almost all of that if needed with 4 TB3 ports and whatever additions (dongles or hubs) I choose. I can also drive 4 displays (I currently run 5 with MacPro).
