    Thinking of purchasing the updated 13" retina macbook pro, however normally these are updated at WWDC. What is the prospect of there being a second 2015 update, and is there any precedent for this?

    There is precendent for the Macbook Pro being updated twice a year. Bottom line is that there is always something better waiting just a bit down the road. If you want to wait for the next great thing, you'll be waiting forever. If you're ready to buy and the current model suits you, then get it. If it doesn't, then don't. The Macbook Pro is an incredible machine, and the average user only has so much to gain by waiting for whatever comes next. If you wait until later this year to buy, then early next year something even better will come out.

    I think that the summer is pretty optimistic, the end of the year is certainly possible. 2013 seen updates in February and October.

    I can wait for the next release, but I doubt it is going to have all the features that I'd like to see.

    I would guess it got its improvements, but they do need some more RAM options, so I wouldn't be surprised to see 16 GB as an option for more of the MBPs.

    I don't think so but

    as usual with apple no one really knows what they'll do at any given moment.

    I would guess a summer refresh to broadwell of the 15 inch when the chips are available.

    Then a complete refresh for skylake early 2016 with a possible redesign to take advantage of some of skylakes new tech.

    ----------

    All of the macbook pros have 16gb as an option.

    To be honest it is the 32gb option that is missing from the pro line....

    I just wanted to say I love your post. It's true with anything! Cars, computers, TV's...And my guess is (as I've contemplated the wait of purchasing a rMBP) that the next model may be better, but it will also be more expensive...and can one swing the difference? My budget is set at a certain amount, so for me, I'll probably just buy when I have the $$ saved up for what I can afford!
