Tell us more about your usage! What make your 2013 struggle?My late 13 13" model isn't keeping up with my usage, so I'm just waiting for the replacement to arrive. But if it wasn't struggling for me then I'd not waste time, money and finite resources on replacing it.

Well I don't think Apple will be releasing that within my lifetime (though to be honest I don't give a damn either way about illuminated logos, that's just cosmetic stuff).I wonder what you're looking for in an Apple replacement, because their direction of travel has been made very clear, including by the latest refreshes. Probably we all want to see the most muscular processors, although I for one don't want to hear fan noise, but what else do we want? If I, an old-fashioned boy, want to see a silent Thickbook boasting a full-travel keyboard, festooned with ports, equipped with the superb magsafe power connector, and adorned with the illuminated logo, then I rather think the Cupertino crew have no plans to excite me.
You do not want to know about my usage: typically 11 virtual desktops ("spaces" in Apple talk), devoted to different ongoing tasks, and a large number of windows open in many of them. I don't do video editing or stuff like that, so it's not single, intensive processes (though some data analysis tasks take a long time), just enough stuff generally going on to impact responsiveness.Tell us more about your usage!

As the old saying goes:
If you NEED IT now, BUY IT now.
Do you NEED a new one just yet?
If it was me, I'd "hold out" until the 2019 models are released.
I STILL DON'T trust the revamped butterfly keyboards...
