As you all know, the 2015 rMBP 15 was fitted with new hardware, but with a AMD GPU that has the same VRAM size as the previous generation except it was from Nvidia.

Now since it's mid 2015, DDR4 is out and we're waiting for Skylake.

The question is: What are your predictions for the new rMBPs?

For me, I predict (even though I know I'll be wrong) that we'll have a choice of 4 or 6GB AMD/Nvidia GPUs, DDR4 32GBs RAM (I hope), and antiglare. I'm hoping that they re-release a 17" version of the rMBP (although I highly doubt it since the 15" has 2K screen).

1- Choice in dGPU from Apple? NEVER. 4GB GPU - probably.

2- 32GB - Not in near future, not enough space. And they won't make it thicker to accommodate the modules.

3-17 inch - No again. I am guessing they will be going towards - 12 14 16 sizes. With smaller footprints.

Just how small they can make it? Are they going to make it as thin as the new Macbook with one port???!!!:confused:
