    KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research report outlining his expectations for next Thursday's "Hello Again" event where Apple is expected to make a number of Mac-related announcements.

    In line with long-standing rumors, Kuo believes the highlight of the event will be a redesigned MacBook Pro in both 13-inch and 15-inch sizes, adopting an OLED touch bar and Touch ID sensor, USB-C, Thunderbolt 3, and the same butterfly keyboard design introduced on the MacBook in 2015. Kuo also adds several new tidbits to the rumor mix:
    Beyond the MacBook Pro, Kuo says Apple will also be introducing a "13-inch MacBook," a claim he has shared previously. Rather than being a slightly larger version of the current 12-inch MacBook, however, this is likely to be a MacBook Air, which would align with other rumors claiming that only the 13-inch MacBook Air will be seeing an update with new USB-C ports.

    On the desktop side, rumors have indicated that Apple is working on updated iMac models with discrete AMD graphics options, as well as a new standalone external 5K display, but Kuo says those products will not be ready until the first half of next year. It is still possible, however, that Apple could announce them at next week's event.
    Apple's event is being held at the company's Cupertino campus and kicks off at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on Thursday. MacRumors will have full coverage both here on the site and on our @MacRumorsLive Twitter account, and Apple will be offering a live video stream of the event.

    Someone please tell me why Apple going with Skylake is better than jumping directly to Kaby Lake. I assume they will use a more powerful version than what's out for the Kaby Lake CPUs at the moment.

    Oh, well. I guess spring will just give me more time to save up for an iMac. (Since there is nothing at all about a Mac Pro...)

    Can we definitively say, based on the available data, that Apple's product release cycles have slowed down to a crawl relative to five - ten years ago?

    They better adapt MagSafe to USB c. It may seem like something little, but there has never been a better laptop charger and little details like that are what make Apple actually Apple.

    5 years since Thunderbolt display received an update, and it's still not ready. What has happened to this company.

    I like how they mention Skylake CPUs instead of the just-around-the-corner Kaby Lake CPUs.

    Hey guys - remember the Mac Pro? The Airport and Airport Express? The Cinema/Thunderbolt Display? The Mac Mini? The iPod Touch?

    What's so different about Apple today relative to 5+ years ago?

    I would much rather have the MacBook in a 16" version, with 500 gb storage, simply because I'm not willing to shell out 4,095 USD for the current 15" MacBook Pro with 500 gb of storage (I'm pretty sure the MacBook's will be quite a bit cheaper than the MacBook Pro's)

    Wow! No iMacs? Wasn't really planning on upgrading, but if it's till next spring, I might snag one then.

    Was hoping for nVidia gpu's though.

    LOL at this point might as well wait for Kaby Lake at a minimum.

    Typing is so much better on the new keyboards.

    SHAME!

    They probably just started on it yesterday.

    Ugh. The worst keyboard ever. Just because you can make something thinner doesn't mean it's a good idea.
