Hi all, I'm debating when to upgrade my 2011 MBP (upgraded to 8gb/256gb SSD). It does the job now, but I'm considering a few things that would be nice: 1. Retina screen especially 2. Better battery life (my 13" 2011 with a brand new battery gets only around 5-6hrs) 3. Weight savings (about a pound) 4. (minor) 802.11ac 5. (minor) USB 3.0 ports What other things are upcoming? For me, the 2 main items I'm waiting on are: 1. An intel cpu with iris graphics that have hardware HEVC decoding (which seems to be the next generation). That way, I can repurpose the laptop as an HTPC later 2. Waiting for Apple to make the base SSD 256gb at least. Currently the jump to a bigger SSD adds $300, which is absurd given that you can buy 512gb SSD's now for $110. Anything else worth watching/waiting for? Just trying to justify a $1300 purchase or so. 2011 was a good year to purchase because it was the first version with sandybridge, which was a big leap over core2duo. Looking at single core performance of a 2011 i5 vs 2015 i5, it's 2143 vs ~2900, so only a +35% increase in performance over 4, almost 5 years now.
