    Yep, you should try sitting in a remote office, working 10+ hours per day, 5+ days per week, on only your 13 inch laptop, because the client does not provide computers or displays to contractors. Remember that you are doing large graphic work (think multiple 4 ft by 6ft printed presentations) accompanied by large scale numerical analysis.

    It does not matter what the computer costs, it only matters that it has ports for use in an office (VGA for the old projectors, HDMI for the new projectors, ethernet (because client public WiFi typically sucks), USB), mag-safe (because there might be 4 to 6 people at one fold up table), large screen, and lots of memory (more than 16G).

    It’s 16:10 for all Mac laptops currently.

    Going 2:1 will be a pretty drastic (and kinda dumb) change. I’m not happy about my prediction, but I bet that’s what happens, especially with Kuo predicting a new 2:1 Apple monitor later this year.

    I’ll be happy to be wrong.

    I want perfect corner to corner screen. Let there be curved LCD, but keep the top border black when watching video.

    And a NuKeyboard that will be killed by dust just beyond your return window or Applecare warranty (whichever is worse).

    Draw a 2:1 ratio screen on an A4 paper - now see that as the aspect ratio of any laptop, especially from Apple. Not possible.

    Meanwhile,I hope this new line of MacBooks from Apple is a complete redesign that junks all the design changes (including thinness) of the MacBooks from 2015 and the MacBook Pro models from 2016.

    The camera in the laptops should be better and standard across all models, even if the bezel is bigger.

    Damn it Apple, let the MacBooks and MacBook Pros breathe.

    They'll continue doing thiccq bezels. The $1 trillion dollar design team doesn't understand what edge-to-edge means.

    As long as Apple keeps the keyboard centered everything will be fine.

    Keypad plus left-shifted main keyboard of current PC laptops might be good for the traveling gamer or accountant. And for aching neck and shoulders.

    I'm in the minority of MacRumors, but I want a thinner/lighter design and smaller bezels! And function keys, but that's probably the majority of MacRumors.

    Yes, I like to cook on my dining table too!:rolleyes:

    All I need are the accessory small hotplate, extra ladles, the easy carry spice rack, a finger-bowl, the larger salt container, a paper towel roll - you know the usual kitchen "Dongles" to add to the "versatility".

    Good that you can drive 4 displays; now a laptop that is for the "regular" user that has all the ports that the 2015 MacBook Pro had. Face it, Apple just found it cheaper to use 4 USB-C ports, undisturbed from the motherboard; actually a lazy move.

    These dongles add to the cost, size and weight of the laptop.:mad:

    I've been waiting for a larger screen since I stopped using my old 17" a few years ago.

    Hope we'll get a gold version of this larger screen model.

    Excluding the MagSafe, useless SD card slot, useless USB-Antique ports, unnecesssry HDMI and you’ve got a point.

    As people purchase USB-C accessories instead you’ll see the lack of need for 60 different USB or HDMI dongles or whatever.

    Pretty sure it's us "big laptop" enthusiasts that are in the minority..

    I see this as Apple realizing they messed up and redesigning it. Maybe the Mac Pro 7,1 isn't going to become vaporware after all!

    TouchBar, Keyboard, Too Large TrackPad that causes false positives, Hinge, All these are design flaws. May be instead of fixing one and every one of them they decided to scrap the whole thing and remake it.

    One thing I *hope* the 16.5" MBP is signalling the new product line up.

    MacBook Pro will start with 14.5" to 16.5"
    MacBook Air will start with 13.3" and 15"
    MacBook at 12" - Ultimate portability.

    The only problem is the naming of MacBook is bit of a mess. And let's hope they have new MBP Thermals design in mind. The new MacBook Air is capped at 10W which irritate me a lot.

    Hey now, don’t just cheer for something so little as increased screen size. Let’s hope better keyboards, battery life (16hrs+) and really cpu and voy performance and game support.

    If they're not going to offer this machine with regular F-keys and forcing us to use the touch bar this is another pointless release from them.

    But... they better get the keyboard problems fixed, or it won't be worth it.

    c'mon, why stop there? Also needs ethernet, VGA and 25pin SCSI ports.

    nope, but it will be perfect for internet complainers.

    I'm fine with all usb-c, but I'd really like to see the return of a SD UHS-II card slot. I know its really unlikely but the capability of putting a DSLR sd card directly into the Mac was really nice.

    Talk about a straw-man. If you're going to argue, you could at least argue in good faith.

    Smells like the same form factor but less bezels.
