    What is the possibility that the MBPs will be bumped up to the rMB style/form factor this year? I sold my 2013 MBPs due to the anticipation of the rMB but the specs were disappointing. So now I'm thinking of going with 2015 MBP or waiting it out for a few months to see what comes down the pipe.

    Unlikely, as that would be completely redundant to have three ultrabook-style notebooks as your only models to choose from when trying to sell to a wide audience of consumers.

    I really doubt they'll be doing a redesign anytime soon. Skylake probably won't be released until late this year.

    Highly unlikely to happen at all. Apple in all likely hood wants to keep the MacBook as a separate product line and differentiate it from the MacBook Pros. The MacBook is designed as a more portable travel laptop unlike the MacBook Pros.

    I think the most likely thing is the rMBP may see a visual refresh with Skylake (perhaps the Silver/Gold/Space Gray color themes and maybe the butterfly keyboard), but the form factor will remain the same.

    The ultra thin/modest power of the MacBook does not serve a LOT of users currently buying Macs. I really doubt Apple is going to get rid of those customers by making compromises on the Pro line.
