    Just curious what anyone else thinks... I keep hearing the 15" model won't have Broadwell due to Intel wanting to sweep it under the rug or that they aren't manufacturing quad-core H models. Then I hear Skylake is being prepared more quickly to make up for Broadwell's delays and "meh" specs, and that Skylake will be out in 2h of 2015... anyone think that will be the Tock in Intel's cycle, and end up in the 15" Macbook Pro and other high end laptops and Desktops?

    You believe too much. Unless Apple says so, no one one this or any other site can tell you.

    It will be released with Skylake.

    No, wait, it will be released with Broadwell.

    We don't know

    And the Tech websites are completely undecided.
    I think if broadwell H is released Apple will use it.

    However wether Intel releases Broadwell is up in the air with differing opinions all over the net.
    Furthermore even if they don't release Broadwell when we get skylake is also completely unknown with estimates ranging from August 2015 to March 2016

    are you seriously asking whether you should upgrade a less than a year old MBP?

    You should probably get a rMB.

    No way. Might as well sell it as parts on eBay. 2014 is so old.

    I heard Skywell. Or was it Broadlake?

    And I was wondering if I should stick with my 2009 17" Mac Book Pro. I guess I need to upgrade at some point before too many port are lost on the latest model.

    Just a question Chief. :) I just bought this model in mid March and am thinking I'll probably want the 2015 version, so I don't want to lose TOO much money if I sell it to get the 2015.

    Thanks for the input everyone. :D

    I'm guessing Broadwell. I highly doubt high performance Skylake will come out before high performance Broadwell. My guess actually is we'll skip skylake and move onto what is after skylake for a redesign next year since the tock refresh is usually more focused on GPU increases.

    We all want Broadwell times with Skylake performance. Ths just won't happen. I'm thinking early 2016 Skylake if they go with mid 2015 Broadwell. But hey I can't see the future
