As someone who has used Windows all his life and never used a Mac before, I'm quite excited to buy a Mac for the first time. Actually, 'excited' understates it. It's more like, I can't wait to chop my Windows machines to pieces. I don't just say this to butt-kiss Mac users on this forum. I used to love Windows, but the direction MS has decided to take after Windows 7, is just infuriating. I wanted an improved desktop system, with an app ecosystem like iOS or the Mac. Instead, the desktop system has remained largely unchanged since Windows 7, the app ecosystem is non-existant, and MS has completely transformed it into a pile of trash by adding the metro design elements on top. Furthermore, I've been using an iPhone and iPad for quite a while, and I'm greatly missing the integration with my iPhone that a Mac would offer me. In short, I've grown to feel alienated from Windows. This is all besides the point really. As much as I can't wait to buy a Mac, I've resigned myself to waiting for a redesigned MBP. If I'm going to buy my first Mac (and spend all that cash), buying a MBP that basically looks the same as the model from 2008 is not that exciting to me. This article perfectly sums up my feeling about the current state of the MacBooks. So do you think the next MBP model will integrate the design elements introduced with the 12" MB? I'm basically looking for a MBP that is as minimalistic as the MB port-wise, is much slimmer and lighter, but still powerful enough to do some real gaming on. (Not cutting-edge, but playing Skyrim or platform games for example.) Reading the forums, I expect a redesigned model will introduced in March/April of 2016. What do you think?
