    I can see Apple making the MBP with the new colors that they use for the macbook. They use the same colors in the iPhone, why not in the pros? I can also see the keyboard changing to the new butterfly mechanism. This might allow a thinner MBP. I think the new macbook is a start of changes for the rest of the macbook series.

    I wouldn't be surprised and fully expect it.

    So aren't iPhones and the new rMBs, that hasn't stopped apple. Besides the word professional in the name of the computer is only there for marketing. Its not more professional then the MBA or MB.

    The word proffesional in computers is

    absolute nonsense. Any computer that fulfiulls a purpose for someones job is a professional computer, that maybe a $200 chromebook for a blogger and writer right up to a supercomputer for a weather data analyst.

    That's basically what I said :rolleyes:

    The term professional in the title is pure marketing.

    The PowerMac G4 was a "supercomputer."

    Pretty sure the iPhone is several times faster than that.

    No it wasn't

    It was briefly restricted for sale to certain countries because the computer export industry hadn't reviewed what constittuted a possibly dangerous level of computing power in 1999. It had a MTOP's score of 2775 and the limit was 2000 quickly raised to 28000 in july 1999.

    Current supercomputers are many thousands of times more powerful these days and wierdly, often built using multiple game consoles.

    I really need a space grey rmbp. My current MacBook Pro looks out of place with all my other Apple devices.
