    As i know at WWDC 2017 they will be announcing MBP 2016 with some hardware updates, i have a following questions :

    1. do you think it will be more expensive than current latest MBP or/and current MBP price will drop?
    2. how soon after announcement updated MBP will actually be in apple store and online markets?
    3. should i go ahead and get MBP right know or wait? (i can wait for a month but not more, i don't have any laptop, only PC and i really need it at this point)
    4. do you think there might be some discounts on MBP's right after release of updated version?

    I'm new to mac world so...idk

    What is your price range? I'm not sure but apparently the updated models with Kaby Lake will only see a 3% - 5% increase in performance. Look at the Refurbished Apple Store on their website because every component is made sure to work and they replace the casing and you get a good discount. I was able to get a Touch Bar 13 inch MBP 2016 for $1530 on the site while the normal price is $1800.

    By all means wait if you want, but I'm not sure why people are determined that Apple are releasing new MBPs at the WWDC. They haven't released any hardware there for years, and it's only been 7 months since the last release! Did people learn nothing from the waiting for skylake thread?! I mean maybe we'll see a MB update, but we were waiting for 2 years for the last MBP, I seriously wouldn't hold my breath on them updating it until the end of the year at the soonest. And even then it'll only (As always) be a minor spec bump. Wait for new generations, not incremental updates.

    Basically, expect the price to be the same, old models to drop off through 3rd parties, usually available after a month. I wouldn't expect anything MBP until later in the year though, don't get suckered into holding on forever, if you need something just buy it.

    So current flagship is like $2600, new one will probably be $2500 at the lowest, older models usually get discounted by around 5-10% from 3rd parties and sell out quickly.

    No. There should be a sticky saying "wait until WWDC". These threads are tiring.

    Is having a MacBook Pro in less than 72 hours critical?
