    I want to get the 13" retina, however, I don't want to go ahead and spend the money on it to find out a new one is going to be released soon. I haven't seen anything, but are there any rumors going around about new macbook pros? Should I just go ahead and get it? Ahh the dilemma.

    Soon could be in March or June or anytime after today.

    Personally, I'm about to pick up a 13" 256gb/4gb macbook air 2015 used for half the retail price so that I actually have a computer while I wait and see what Apple does with their laptops this year. Could be great, could be worse.

    I needed it for my iOS programming class and I didn't want to scare my classmates with my windows laptop running OS X on VMware. ;)

    I saw a sign on Route 66 that said....Soon.

    The rumor mill says in June at WWDC. Your mileage may vary, some assembly required, batteries not included.

    It's actually been oddly quiet in regards to a refresh of the MacBook Pro. But then again, there was absolutely ZERO rumor mill or leak surrounding the MacBook (12 inch) released last year until it was literally walking out on stage. Sure there was speculation, but nothing like what it ended up being.

    I have the 2015 Macbook Pro 13" fully loaded. I went from the Air to the Macbook to the Pro, and the pro is the biggest\heaviest laptop I've ever traveled with, but it's also the most functional laptop I've ever owned. If they add the new butterfly keyboard, terraced battery technology, USB-C, and a more power efficient processor I'd be one friggin happy camper.

    I wait for the 21MAR event, however I'm not overly optimistic about what it'll bring on the computer side. Sure last year they headlined the spring event with the Macbook, but I think that was only because they didn't have a new product release (of significance) other than that. I think this year if the rumors of the 5se are true, and the iPad Pro (smaller) are true, that along with the features of iOS 9.3 will be the general discussion at the event. Otherwise, what else will they cover at WWDC? 10.12 and iOS 10 of course, but they need hardware to go with it and the Mac entire lineup has traditionally been updated at WWDC.

    Time will tell, I hope my prediction is wrong and we see MBPr next week :)
