    I hope the rumors are true, but am not sure what to do if nothing happens this October.

    I have already waited for so long and I don't think I can wait any longer.

    What are you going to do if November comes without any announcement from Apple?

    Continue to wait, like I always have. I'm not a whiner and won't settle for any thing less than a Mac. Better late than never.

    I am 99.9999999999% sure they are coming.

    But if they do not, and you really need a new machine, buy one of the MacBook Pros that are currently available. They are all still very capable machines that have comparable performance to the Skylake processors everyone is apparently waiting for.

    Agreed with waiting. The current rMBPs are still the best portables on the market; no question. I can understand why they didn't update them as the newer chips people are begging for don't really offer any real performance benefits.

    The only gripe I have is the pricing. If you can't justify an update, that's fine. But don't keep them priced the same.

    Don't forget to take a shot every time somebody says "I bought a DELL XPS instead".

    I am going for the iMac, but no laptop updates in October, might mean no iMac in November. Which makes me cry.

    I sorta wanna wait until there's a new macbook pro, possibly a retina external display, and an iMac introduced.
    That way I know which direction to go and make an educated choice that's based on facts.

    I think this week will be crunch time, as i would expect the invites for an October event to be sent out by end of the week if its happening.

    I don't NEED a new rmbp but I would like a new one.

    I'm more worried about the probable price hike (I live in the UK). I've been looking at the Dell XPS but I wouldn't get either before their respective refreshes.

    Buy the 2015 model. My computer is knackered and I can't wait any longer than the end of this month.

    I'll be doing nothing, since I already moved on, and purchased a Surface Book

    There's moderators/admins that use android, I think while we are all apple fans, we pick the tools that best serve our needs.

    Same as we did when they did not release on the rumored release dates of October 2015, March 2016, and June 2016.

    Carry on and keep on using our Macs.

    Wait. Husband just got his own XPS13 with Ubuntu so he promised to let me touch it :) I've got a new apple tv and NAS to keep me entertained for a few months. I refuse to look at the ads for the new HP machines or the Dells or the .... no, really, I'm not looking lol.... but you know, I actually *could* switch. ITunes runs on Windows, all I need it is to back up my iPads/iPhone. Scrivener runs on Windows. Most of the other apps I might use also run on Windows. No, I'm really not looking, lol... but it will be a long Winter...

    Nothing.

    I bought my 2015 15" rMBP few months ago, it serves me well and will continue to do for at least couple of years.
