    My hopes are:
    - user replaceable MBP
    - strictly using Samsung screens and SSD
    - 512 gb SSD in the entry model (prices dropped alot since last year)
    - Atleast 3 years warranty standard ( Dead RAM = dead rMBP after only 1 year despite Crucial offering lifetime warranty on RAM which Apple might use )

    What is a user replaceable MBP? A battery? If so, not a chance.

    And the warranty thing will be not a chance two, that is what the ACPP is there for.

    I don't see the Retina's every becoming user upgradable. They've started this system of making them non serviceable and people are going for it and they are able to massively inflate part prices by needing to do it themselves so why not keep doing it?

    I wish I could get the Retina screen without all the soldered parts but I'm not holding my breath.

    And as the other guy said why eliminate Apple Care by offering such a long warranty standard. They make hundreds of millions on those plans I assume so why get rid of it?

    Presumably OP meant upgradeable / serviceable, in which case... not a chance :( I reckon it's only a matter of time before the unibody is actually sealed shut!

    100% guarantee you'll be able to do this. Any time you want :D

    The rest? Well, my wife has a better chance of finding the dishwasher and then actually figuring out how to use it. :eek:

    This would be my dream 2013 rMBP:

    • Black anodized aluminum unibody construction with chamfered monitor bezel
    • Retina Display
    • Haswell Intel Mobile Chipset
    • 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD standard
    • Intel GT3 + Nvidia GTX Titan based discrete graphics
    • 802.11 AC wireless
    • 10 hour battery life
    Get it done Apple!

    Realistically I want:

    35w Quads with the GT3e core
    16gb of ram
    7mm 2.5'' HDD bay, so I can put my SSD in there, preferably the intel DSC3700 or crucial m500 with 960gb

    Idealistically I want the thunderbolt 2.0 (40GB/s)that is coming in 2014, and that the egpu enclosures for thunderbolt drop in price.

    Also lets be real, expectations of 32gb of ram? not going to happen, not in DDR3 at least, DDR4 completely possible, we are only one year away from that.

    Discrete gpus on the 13, also gone

    MBP line also gone

    replacing ram, ethernet port, and some other shenanigans gone as well.

    32gb is about as realistic as your 2.5" user upgradeable drive bay. :D

    I just want the web cam to not stink so hard. Not that I use it. It just looks so poor when I do. Also, I want it to make egg sandwiches. I love egg sandwiches.

    If I read one more "when's Haswell coming?" thread, I'm going to barf. Everyone's got real high hopes for what's probably just going to be an incremental upgrade.

    The first 2 are all but impossible at this point.
    The 3rd is possible, but very unlikely
    The fourth is also very very unlikely

    None of these are going to happen.

    My bet is Haswell will be a quiet processor bump in the same old design.

    not really if Kuo is right, the retinas are going to drop n price again one of their measures would be to fill that space in the rmbp 13 with a 7mm HDD

    there is also the matter that there were some HDD using 5mm of height only, so yes this is also possible.

    in the end, its quite possible, we have to see if apple will lose so much from the economy of scale in using the same drive to power the mbas and rmbps

    for me their priority measure is to kill so many mobos that they have for the rmbp 15, its 6 basically, thats too much stock and production, all the other lines have 2 mobos, except the mba 13, which has 3

    No. Haswell is a new architecture.
