    My Magic 8 Ball says "outlook not so good."

    Hard to say given that higher refresh rate panels tend to be much more expensive than what people are willing to pay.

    Why does that matter? They are not designed for gaming.

    Well, judging by the iPad Pro experience, it does make things smoother. Which is great if you work with a lot of text for example.

    TruMotion, on the iPad Pro 10.5", makes a dramatic difference to the eye--images and text move with a strong sense of solidity and smoothness. If the refresh rate could be raised on the MacBook Pro, and achieve similar dramatic difference, I believe it would be very popular among Apple customers. A key factor, of course, is cost, and bringing the screens to market with a reasonable price tag.

    I'll reckon that "60hz is it" for the foreseeable future...

    Hmm. I have an iPad Pro 10.5 and 9.7 and really do not notice a lot of difference when scrolling.

    I would much rather Apple spend their engineer budget improving the reliability of the keyboard on the 2018 and later MBPs.
