    Besides Force Touch, what other updates are anticipated for the upcoming 2015 MBP? Faster Thunderbolt? Faster processor?

    Thanks.

    What? The 13" & 15 MBP were updated already in 2015 with Force Touch. I know of no other MBP updates in 2015.

    I'm anticipating that it'll be released in 2016.

    I'm wondering about this myself. I have a $1500 Apple Gift Card to spend, and really want to buy a 13-inch rMBP, probably 8/256, which would fit within that budget. I was actually thinking of going to the Apple Store tomorrow to buy it, but now I'm not so sure. What do you folks think are the chances that next week's event will include any kind of update--or price change--of the rMBP, given that this incarnation of the model is so new? Should I wait another week? It would be pretty irritating to buy one, then find out a week later that I should have waited!

    According to this article, the chips Intel announced that are suitable for the 13" rMBP won't be available until early next year.
