    If you can just wait another 14 years...you'll likely get:

    1) iSolar case on MBP means no dead battery unless you're in the dark.

    2) Duck-Savage i9 cores with 128 GB RAM.

    3) Exclusive iKey tech with variable keyboard travel.

    4) Liquid trackpad keeps fingers moist.

    5) Twin RS-232 ports

    6) 3D iTap virtual display with Polax scent emitters.

    7) iFlex allows entire laptop to be rolled into a one inch tube.

    So go buy a pen and some paper, maybe a calculator. Cool your jets because this'll be worth the wait and you'll save upwards of 30K by not buying tired tech.

    Only two RS-232 ports?! This shows it's clearly not a pro machine and Apple doesn't care about pros anymore.

    And where is the parallel port for my dot-matrix printer? Pro machine indeed!

    This is not a Pro laptop!! Can't believe Apple is selling us this garbage in 2031.

    What we do know about 2030 MacBook Pro:

    - Will be using persistent memory called Memristor, which is non-volatile, handles both loading and storage of some applications and data. Basically, SSD's won't be needed anymore.
    - The amount of Memristor memory will likely be a small amount because much of the data: apps, settings, files, personality are stored in the cloud. So, yes, it will be about 128 GBs of NVDIMM-N.
    - Looking at networks, this will be the heart of the 2030 MacBook Pro. Completely wireless networked device. Built in 6g, 802.11 AF or AE communications.
    - Intel is stretching out its releases, in fact, Coffeelake is expected to be based on 14 NM, too. We won't see 10 NM processing until 2019 and Intel is likely to stretch it out to 4 revisions. This means, 2020, 2021, 2022 will all see tock, tock, tock releases of 10 NM before we go to 5 NM in 2023. 5 NM is likely going to be stretched out to 2026. It is said that 3 NM will be the next step after 5 NM. So, an Intel processor based on 3 NM transistor will likely be in the 2030 MacBook Pro.
    - No ports, complete wireless charging. Please take into account, the environment will be woven with wireless charging. Any piece of furniture will have wireless charging built in. Even the car seats in your autonomous vehicle will be conductive. So your device will constantly be charged, even when you visit developing countries such as mine.
    - 8K Quantum Dot Display (QDD) powered by 32 GBs vRAM from nVidia. Pictures and video will be so life like you can't tell if you are looking at a screen or through a window.
    - New variant of e-paper keyboard based on taptic engine with superior tactile feedback.

    - Battery technology is still debatable, but due to efficiency of chips, software and technology, Battery life is likely to be extended up to 24 to 48 hours, due to he behavior in local and remote processing. Also remember, wireless charging environment will make the battery redundant.

    Architecture and Design

    The 2030 MacBook Pro logic board is completely based on a single SoC (system on a chip). This means, the 128 GBs of NVDIMM-N, wireless communications, vRAM, Intel 3 NM chip will be as small as a postage stamp.

    This means, the form factor of the 2030 MacBook Pro will be thinner than the 12 inch Retina MacBook, but similar in design as the current MacBook Pro. Display will use an infinity design with an embedded camera under the display.


    I mentioned earlier, there will be local storage for loading some apps and data. Due to latency, there will still be a need for super fast access to local apps and some data. The world is not perfect in 2030 still. So, things will be kind of similar as they are today, but a whole lot better.

    - APFS will be updated to APFS plus to handle memristor chips.
    - Your Home folder will default to the cloud
    - Basically, the behavior of AppleOS is a super powerful thin client.
    - Most apps are in the cloud and for the most part are accessed remotely: Final Cut, Office, Adobe CC, AutoCad but they still look like local clients. When you record 8K footage using a smart phone or professional camera, it is automatically synced to a remote server from that device. There is little need to sync back that data locally.
    - There is no such thing as Touch ID because, the 2030 MBP knows you based on several biometric characteristics: Smell, glucose, body temperature, sweat and traditional iris recognition and facial structure. The password is basically dead.

    Again, there is no such thing as booting and this will probably lead to substantial improvements in battery life. We will finally have instant on that is faster than a radio or TV. There just won't be any waiting. Apple OS is always current, you don't think about updates.

    Of course key features of AppleOS will be its deep neural network represented by Siri. The deep level of Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality will be so unbelievable, its scary. Siri will be pre-emptive and more proactive than it is today. For instance, it will understand your interactions, job, environment and know when to schedule things like a vacation, necessary purchases, payment of bills, without you asking, provide opportunities for maybe further education, edit memories how you like them.

    All of this is thanks to a world filled with sensors all around us in 2030.

    Interface - pretty similar to macOS today, but more akin to iOS 11 in most ways.

    The 2030 MacBook Pro in some ways be a truck to many, a powerful, but important one to have. They are preference devices along with the iPad and iPhone a lot of users like using in 2030.

    Ultimately, the killer device will be the Apple Iris glasses.

    So, thats my thoughts on the 2030 MacBook Pro.

    By 2030 there will be no laptop or desktop machines. Just a Apple speaker that does everything you tell it to do.

    For many, it will be so. But for most of the 7 billion humans in 2030, that won't be the case. You will still need to have a traditional type client server computing for some work loads and users in certain parts of the world. I have an article about managing Windows 10 data usage on metered connections. Most of the comments are from users in the United States.

    For a large majority of users, an Apple Iris, Watch, HomePod and omni-present assistant (Siri) will be all you need. For sophisticated users in first world countries and states, a traditional computer won't make much sense. This is due to the sensors around us by then.

    For example, you won't write a resume when applying for your first or transitioning to a new job. There will be a personality profile about you regarding your work history; possibly enhanced by you. For example, a professional drone recorded video of some of your previous job highlights and achievements produced in a professional 10 minute motion picture film. Self produced testimonials from your colleagues, family and friends.

    Typing will be required for some work due to privacy and sensitive information, but its not a necessity. Dictation will be so good due to your profile, voice recognition and audio sensors based on machine learning and deep neural networks will be make it natural to use. So, dictation will be the primary method of word processing. Video and Audio Presentations will primarily be the way reports are done.

    Looking at things like security, I believe mandatory snooping in devices will be required to detect terror plots by default. It will be a huge blow to terrorist, because devices by then will be unsuitable communication platforms, ultimately damaging their communication networks. Trust me, nobody cares about your fetish for leather or S&M. As long as you are not harming anybody, you will mostly be ignored. But, machine learning and deep neural networks will be so powerful, it will be hard for someone to cause harm.

    Your environment will be able to determine your behavior patterns, communication, activities, viewed content that it will be able to tell when you have gone off your rocker. So, not only will our devices work better for us, but also better protect us. Its gonna be exciting.

    You all forgot:

    Paper thin and no battery, no keyboard and one single USB-D port....they will also sell you a giant dongle with a battery and a keyboard and other ports that can be used to connect a cascade of dozens of other nested dongles, obligatory otherwise you would not be able to do anything...

    Price of the MBP only 4999$ (6000€, 8000£) + only 3999$ (5000€, 7000£) for the Mega-dongle...

    But, look, it is 50% thinner than the previous generation....

    They even prevewed it 2 days ago....

    In 2030, you don't own the MacBook Pro, there really is no point, you lease it. Moores law will kinda hit its limit and I believe in the mid to late 2020's all manufacturer's will move to this model. It will certainly mean a lower cost to own a computer. The cost to lease will based based primarily on usage. So, something like a Apple Platform Services will be developed where you pay for your computing monthly or weekly.
