I realize that, at the time of this writing, no official announcements have been made by Apple and only speculations regarding the changes (no ODD, retina display, etc.) are floating around.

With that said, I'm curious to know, just based on past Apple patterns; how likely is the MBP going to get a revamp for 2012? Very likely, possible, or unlikely? I know some of you here have been Apple users since the 90's, some of you must have some insight or perspective on this matter.

Going from the past schedule, it is likely, as the Unibody design is just over three years old.
The design before that was five and a half years old.
The design before that was only two years old.

So all in all, it is likely, but it is all just speculation. We will see in April or May, when the new MBPs get released.

Still, the design of the original MacBook Pro debuted in 2006, not 2003. What are you talking about?
The Aluminium G4 PowerBook, which was released in January 2003.

12" PowerBook

15" PowerBook

17" PowerBook


15" MacBook Pro

17" MacBook Pro


Anyway, the visual difference is the added iSight camera and infrared receiver and the removed plastic bars (antenna) when Apple switched from IBM to Intel for its CPUs.
