    I'm using a 2012 non-retina 15" MacBook Pro. For the work I do it's starting to show its age. I'm starting to itch for an upgrade and I'll be getting a new machine this fall regardless but has there been any talk of a redesign? That always makes it a little more fun. Any word/thoughts on what might surface this fall?

    No, I think the only thing that has been rumored is a hardware upgrade nothing aesthetic. The MacBook Air's should see a redesign.

    I doubt it

    They may use them but I think the pros will stick with thunderbolt and HDMI ports as well, the retina air may well have only USB C though.

    The current design is only 2 generations old I think they will want a bit more before refitting their fabrication facilities.

    Take for sure that if Apple can make it thinner thanks to the type C USB's, there's no way they'll use type A 3.1 USB's, they will make it thinner no matter what. They are obsessed with thinness (over anything else).

    Ha ha ha

    They maybe obsessed with thinness but also profits and it's just too soon for a major design change going by previous design cycles of macbooks. The CMBP was mostly unchanged for 6 years. The macbook air was last redesigned in 2010 etc etc. Maybe for skylake but I seriously doubt there will be a change for Broadwell.

    Of course I may be totally wrong as so many supposedly professional analysts are when it comes to Apple. But if there is one thing I have learned over the years I have used macs it is that if you err on the side of caution then you will be closer to apples way of thinking more often than not.

    Not true at all. They are obsessed with making premium products. Take a nap.
