    With the newly updated Retina display Macbook Pros, do you think the Macbook Pro will be updated any time soon (in mind that the Macbook Pro is close to hitting its average update time)?

    Thanks!

    I don't think you can rally qualify the speed bump as an update. Haswell is due out in April and so the new MBPs will be released after that.

    If you need one now, buy one, but if you can wait until May or June for the new chipsets, then wait.

    Not before haswell which comes out June 2nd. My guess would be July or August.

    If you able to wait you might as well!

    But if you need it now, it's a pretty long ish wait. August seems like a popular predication for Haswell in Macbook Pros.

    It's never guaranteed when Apple will release a refresh. Everything is just speculation. If you feel like waiting up to several months, possibly even more, then by all means wait. But if you need/desperately want a new computer now, then you might as well get one.
