    I think the micro-LED / XDR display will make it to the MacBook Pro in the next major revision, but I don't think it will be next year. I bet in about a year, there will be a mostly-quiet spec bump that brings us 10th gen CPU with WiFi AX and an updated AMD GPU to go along with it. Otherwise same machine. I think the next major update will be 3 to 4 years... again.

    If only there were 8 PORTS!! :)

    This update was so close to everything on my list... so close.

    Their keyboard situation was inexcusable from 2016-2019, so that's really just resetting back to "doesn't suck." I'm glad it's fixed, but don't give them a lot of credit there. Apple is held back by Intel on the processor side, so while a speed bump would have been nice, I can't fault them there.

    Glad to see signs in the right direction, but I'm waiting this one out to see if these new keyboards truly do fix the reliability problem... And maybe by that time, the next generation will add a couple more ports :D

    You won't get more ports until we get more PCIe lanes on these mobile CPUs. Quad TB3 is already providing more I/O potential and bandwidth than any other laptop maker out there, so not sure what you're hoping for. What you won't see from Apple is other USB, HDMI, etc.. ports that can be facilitated within the TB3.

    And yeah, 8 ports would be pretty amazing. And overkill.

    Yep 1x8 lanes for the GPU and 2x4 lanes for the 2x TB3 controller, the thunderbolt 3 ports share the bandwidth with their neighbour.

    Agreed on above, including Support for the latest WiFi 6 802.11ax

    In addition to;
    720p FaceTime HD? (lol)
    Do not know why they keep refusing to allow a touch-screen in a MacBook
    UWB

    However, Apple is pushing the ‘world’s best pro notebook and I am all in...

    I'm so glad someone else held onto their 2012 MBPr this long haha! Also pulled the trigger for a maxed out but with 2TB :)
