    I just got a fully spec'd Retina MacBook 15" - but now I've been told that new ones are about to be released. I am still within my 14 days, should I return it?

    Definitely yes. Even if the new release is just a minor performance/battery life bump, you could get a similar spec for less money or even invest on a bigger SSD.

    FWIW the Mac I got was a refurb as well. I am currently doing my Time Machine backups and preparing for return.

    NO!!! Since you have 14 days, why not wait two days until Wednesday before you panic?

    Because that's two more days for him to spill coffee on it.

    In all reality, I'd just hold onto it if these two days are in your window then perform whatever action you so desire.

    Don't jinx yourself and dint it or do anything to it if you intend to return it. I'd just be safe and pack it all up now...

    The new MBP 15" will have the forcetouch trackpad, that's just a given. It's hard to say if anything else will change though? I haven't followed rumors, so that's the only thing I would be able to say for sure...

    Here's a thought: They introduce a new unibody design for the Macbook Pros and throw it on the 15 inch to start, with a thinner bezel? Dreaming... it will happen eventually, a matter of when... and if Apple will allow that sort of thing to happen, possibly poaching off one line as the other becomes overly similar/better.

    Guaranteed we will see: force touch, faster SSD, processor jump (given), and some sort of dGPU upgrade, probably a 950, would be ecstatic with a 960.

    I won't be requesting a return until AFTER the announcement.

    However, I am going to stop using it as soon as my Time Machine's restore to my spare old 13".

    I just want to put it back in box ASAP so I don't break it or jinx myself.

    Good plan, but remember that the refresh is just a rumor for now.

    This is a rumor, and since it is a rumor then I would think that if it comes true that it's just going to be the new track pad and processor / faster memory. If it was a redesign than it would be released at the WWDC so that they can point out all the wonderful new features:eek:

    The rumor was for Wednesday

    Good Luck with your new, is it fair to say that you'll be selling that as soon as the release the skylake processor?

    Well, sort of. Still Haswell. And a shift to AMD for the dGPU, which may not turn out to be a plus, depending on what software you mostly use.

    Absolutely and the nice thing is Apple won't even blink about it.
