    You know for a fact? And how are you so certain ?
    Maybe will come next week, maybe September / October

    intel CEO said broadwell will be released by the holiday season (Q4 2014) . and apple most likely won't update till next year like they did with haswell for the rMB.

    Agree with Sifinity. I think most are aware of this news by now.:)

    The problem with that, is that we will stay with
    2013 hardware and without speed bump for more than an year?!
    That never happened in recent apple history, at least from
    The Intel CPU time frame.

    From what I have read, the Broadwell 47w quadcore CPUs that the 15" rMBP uses won't be out until Q2 2015, following the release of the 28w dualcore CPUs that the 13" rMBPs use in Q1 2015.

    So, a Broadwell refresh isn't likely till at least mid-2015.

    Didn't Intel say that it's still on track for Skylake in 2015? If so, Broadwell may be very short-lived, no?

    Broadwell is really the only update I can think of. Maybe a different/better dGPU but since the iGPus from Intel have improved dramatically, I don't see that happening. I wonder if apple will drop the dGPU altogether

    I don't see that happen with the high end model.
    That feature is needed at least to differentiate and segment the offers in Macbook Pro.
