    - Skylake i7
    - 32GB RAM
    - 2 TB SSD
    - 17" retina with less reflection
    - Don't want thinner ... give me power. It's a pro laptop after all
    - USB3.1, TB3, sd card, magsafe
    - Color option would be nice, just to keep the family macs apart
    - That's about it. I'm not a difficult person :D

    The poll doesn't quite work for me because I will get a 14" or the 15" depending on what's on offer.

    I hope they go edge to edge with the new MBP and I hope the 15 inch has a 14 inch footprint like the 12 MacBook has an 11 Air footprint

    You mean you want Apple to copy the Dell XPS 13/XPS 15?
    --- Post Merged, Apr 11, 2016 ---
    Apple will probably soldered the RAM and SSD as a "Haha! **** you!" to see how much money it can milk.

    I don't believe Apple will want to make the bezels quite like the Infinity Edge on the xps, rather make the bezels the same size as the 12" MacBook and maybe a few millimeters smaller.
    The skylake update will also most likely bring the design language from the MacBook to the MacBook Pro:
    All metal casing/hinge, better speakers, color options etc etc. Hopefully they do implement the keyboard that is found on the new Magic Keyboard, with more keytravel, rather than the awful keyboard on the MacBook.

    No, I mean I want Apple to copy their earlier machine. Did you read the post you quoted? I have no idea about anything Dell makes, that's irrelevant to me.
