    Waiting with great curiosity of what Apple is going to do with the MB Air and how it is going to fit between rMBP and rMB. However, I wouldn't expect much from any integrated graphics gpu regarding gaming, although the new ones will surely be better than the existing (I couldn't imagine the opposite).

    Maybe they'll use a mobile AMD RX GPU?

    The RX 470 card I just got has fans that turn on only when the card is working hard.

    The fans don't even turn on for Everspace which is capped at 60fps and I'm running it at 1080p Ultra settings... :eek:

    I just read somewhere's yesterday that the new Intel IG is gonna be huge step as well...

    I have been waiting a year, mainly because I have been saving up (see sig) for a new iMac.
    And I feel like whichever Mac they come out with this year. That it's at least an improvement over the one that's out right now. I am going to let it go that they're ruining the graphics card side of things again. No use at the moment to really complain about it until we see the specs sheets on their website.

    The Macbook Air and Macbook Retina should be the first Kaby Lake processors on macs.
    MBA will have enough power for current games until 2017 blockbusters require discrete is the usual way it works.
    Personally, I am waiting for the larger MBP with TB3 and preferably 1TB or larger SSD.

    Then again, I'll mainly be programming.

    I was hoping for some Computer love last night. The MacPro really needs an update

    This is a claim based on traces of new hardware support found in macOS (Sierra). Which makes a clickbaiting headline, however the only thing we can be sure of is:

    "new Apple computers will NOT happen before October and there is no published timeline of them happening thereafter."

    All the rest is, unfortunately, just a speculation of paid-per-clicks journalists.

    September isn't the hardware line - I think they almost never released an iMac in September.

    Personally I think mobile is first, including laptops, following the iPhone and the Watch and the operating systems.
    With October/November releases in the past, and rumours about laptops being higher in the list, and basically nothing about the iMac, the next step is mobile desktops, rather than desktop desktops.

    I am interested and may pop $2.5k for a MBP with dedicated graphics.

    If the MacPro update is not a home run this year (meaning they give up the trash can design). It will likely be the last MacPro as the remaining power users abandon Apple.
