    Prepare for 'something'gate. I have a hard rule and that is that I never buy Apple hardware on the first generation. The iPhone X was the only time I have broken that rule. Let's see what changes, if any they make.

    I am buying a laptop to use today, not for when Skynet is active, Brain cancer has killed half the current earth's population and Terminators are TSA agents!

    It's been over two years. How far along has the general market gone in terms of that happening? Is price parity the same?

    It isn't unheard of for some people having to purchase a few hundred dollars in dongles or simply an all in one unit like OWC's offerings just go get functionality they seek.

    Still too soon. I assume that both 13 and 15 inches wont gonna be available with a new design till 2020 but 16 or 16.5.

    Yeah they need to clean their line up because
    1. MacBook Pro 13 inches is not a pro grade at all due to lack of GPU and 32gb ram.
    2. MacBook and MacBook Air are quite similar. I have no idea why they did this.

    I described the MacBook Pro and Air models available until 2018 and still, respectively, from the Apple Store. The era of major discontent and $700 keyboard replacement at Apple started before this period.:mad:

    I am also for not soldering anything to the motherboard - they already did well designing the SoC - and now condemn every one of them when a soldered component fails?:eek::oops:

    Macbook - Apple's proprietary name for all of its laptops!:);)

    What joke are you attempting to make?

    MacBook Air
    MacBook
    MacBook Po

    MacBook is likely going to be axed. Or were you humoring me by suggesting they all need to be axed because Apple's quality control for the last five years has been garbage?

    Yep, I would like to see 2 x pro laptops

    14" & 16.5" - both with decent GPU and 32gb.

    I was in the Apple store on the weekend and was thinking a 14" would be perfect for me, as the 13 is a bit too small and the 15 too big. Hopefully see these in June and await the rumours building up.

    No way this is going to happen. Apple spent millions to develop the current Macbook Pro - for them to abandon it after barely 2.5 year run (late 2016-mid 2019) is to lose tons of profit. They'll never go for it. The 32GB option on current 13in machines is feasible though. Hope it happens.

    I think this is the most likely. 13/15 going to 14/16 with smaller bezels has seemed inevitable since the 2016 model debuted with the relatively large bezels.

    GPU and 32GB RAM max for the smaller model makes sense as well. Now that the Air is retina, there’s too much overlap with a 13” MBP.

    How would they lose profits? If they spent $200M redesigning it, do you not think they regained that lost money and then some back? They don't stand to lose profits because they refresh one year earlier. The cost of retooling isn't on Apple.

    Joining you, I guess, in saying that the name MacBook exists only with the suffix Air and Pro.

    Seriously though, the Air is not going to die, and just "MacBook" is one too many in the lineup. Even now, say MacBook and see people waiting for you to qualify it or finish the sentence.

    3 yrs. you’re counting 2016 as a first full year when it’s not: starting point is 0 not 1.

    2016
    2017
    2018
    2019 we’re in yet no new MBP released this 3yrs.

    FaceID makes the most sense in a laptop or desktop ~ I would be shocked if this wasn’t part of a refresh for either

    Ha. I should not! If I spent a majority of my time working on my laptop without peripherals... I just wouldn’t.

    I’m admittedly biased in regards to my observations. I work primarily with developers. Almost everyone in design or video has always been on much more powerful iMacs or even Mac Pros when they were still legitimately Pro.

    Like I said, I’m not sad when people get what they want. I think the iPhone Plus and Max models are nuts. Doesn’t mean a lot of people didn’t want them or use them.
