    I think in The Netherlands it makes no sense in ordering the rMB12 gen1 because it will take till june to even get the base configuration. The BTO probably another 2 months and than we are already close to the skylake update and hopefully a second USBC port :).

    I appreciate what you're saying, and all this delay is hugely frustrating, but who is to say that there won't be similar delays with the next model. The next version may not come this year either.

    In the UK, BTO models are arriving at the same time as base models. So I don't expect additional delays for them.

    No chance on earth they will release a new version in two months. Forget it.

    Personally, I'd be surprised if it's this year.

    No one said it was a big effort. It is not. Apple won't do it in 2-3 months even if they could.

    Q1 2016 for Skylake MacBook, next generation of Intel`s CPU`s are not a drop in component, Apple will need to redesign the Logic Board, no doubt as with all major`s they will have access to prerelease CPU`s.

    Second generation will likely not generate so much interest with the general public, nor will the majority of first Gen owners look to upgrade immediately and the demand on Apple`s supply chain will be far less. Depending on additional functionality Apple may want to take the opportunity to push the MackBook into the "limelight" once again.


    Q-6
