It's strange the new MacBook Pro 13" didn't include USB-C

    I guess they didn't want to make a new enclosure to accommodate the different size. Perhaps when they fully refresh the Pro line.

    Yep

    They had no intention of a redesign for broadwell and hence no intention of new ports....

    Could be wrong but I feel they didn't particularly want to use USB-C on anything yet, but they wanted the new Macbook so slim they had no other choice.

    USB-C's main feature is that it can host video output, charging, classic usb, card slots... All in one port.

    The Mbp has all those already intergrated on separate ports, so what would be the point?

    I think they would want to register an official Thunderbolt Alt Mode implementation for USB-C first. But of course, avoiding a redesign seem to be more likely.

    It was a minor spec bump, it will come when apple embraces Broadwell (or worse skylake)

    The new rMBPs have Broadwell chips.
