It is looking more likely a new MacBook Pro (Mid 2017) will be launching at WWDC 2017. Users can expect to see the addition of the Intel Kabylake processor. Part of what took so long was due to suitable part not being ready. Now they are and todays launch of a revised Surface Pro (2017) with the 7 th generation Intel processor is another sign it will also be coming to Apple. We all know Apple has kind of suffered from Intel's technological pain points over the past couple of years. But, according industry analyst, part of this fast update cycle (9 months after the 2016 MacBook Pro with Kabylake), is another sign of Apple's commitment to the Mac. There is not much else known about the update apart from possible support for up to 32 GBs of RAM (although industry analyst say this is desktop class RAM). With performance and battery life critical to Apple notebooks, it most likely will be low power DDR3. Computer World has a good synopsis of what to expect: http://computerworld.com/article/31...s-kaby-lake-macbook-upgrades-coming-soon.html Bottom line, if you want to get the best bang for your bucks, wait a month or two. Sometimes, announcements doesn't mean same day or next week availability. If you need a Mac now because your current model is too slow, dead or the money is burning a hole in your pocket, buy the 2016, return it before 14 day grace period then get the new model. Do take into account, if Apple announces these new Kabylake processors at WWDC, they might not be available until the end of June. Thats more than a week without a new computer, if you decide to return it and wait. So, if you can wait or struggle through June with what you, you can save yourself the convenience and have a new MacBook Pro to unbox. Of course, custom models with faster parts (CPU, more RAM, more powerful GPU) will likely push it out to probably a couple months. So, take these logistics into account when making your purchase. If your work is critical, then, you might have to make the sacrifice and go with the 2016 model and sell it later. Just accept the reality, its gonna be devalued.
