    Probably, yes... this year (2019).
    I currently own the 2018 MacBook Air and it works well, but I need more processing power, RAM and SSD storage because the base model is limiting.

    I am a Web Developer and also interested with Data Science and Blockchain.

    I might need more RAM for running multiple Docker containers, etc. I need to have bigger memory because I prefer all my data are in the computer, not in any separate external storage.

    Rumors everywhere. Now its rumored that a 16-16.5” MacBook Pro is “maybe” coming this year. Also “maybe” a 13” MacBook Pro with 32gb RAM. Crazy or what?

    Anyway. I’m still selling, trying anyways, my 2017 15” MacBook Pro and getting a 2018 model in about a month.

    Well mine is sold. Bought the new 2018 15” MacBook Pro with 2.6ghz i7, 32gb RAM, 512GB storage, & Vega 20. Bought Apple refurbished this time. Saved $350 vs new. Never bought refurbished before. Shouldn’t be no problems because this is used from Apple.

    Should be at the Apple Store on Thursday. Can’t wait.

    Are you going to buy the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID?-fullsizerender.jpeg

    For reference, I ordered the i5/256GB/16GB spec MBP. Came out to $1920~ inc. tax in Canada with the education discount.

    The most "intensive" work this laptop will see is Adobe Lightroom editing. Otherwise, it will be mainly a Chrome/Brave surfer, Netflix binger, YouTube watcher. All your basic normal tasks.

    I heavily considered the Macbook Air, however, based on the reviews I've read and watched, I didn't like how hot & loud the fans get with simple tasks/processes. I can't imagine all that heat and fan rev would do the Macbook Air any good in the long run. I plan on keeping this new MBP for 6/7+ years.
    Coming from a mid-2010 15" MBP that I brought during my undergraduate days. I can't help but feel a little bit let down with this refresh... No 14" screen, 10th gen intel chipsets, DDR4 memory & 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports on all variants of the 13" MBP.

    I guess I was reading too many rumours and blog posts, which got me all hyped up for this refresh...It is still a massive refresh for me, but it could have been better. However, still excited, and the 15-20th of May can't come soon enough...

    I’m soooo very tempted to get the 2020 13” MacBook Pro. I mean, 16 GBs RAM, Touch Bar and 256 GB storage for $1,299? It’s killing me...(laughing)

    Don't always believe what you read, I got a Air last weekend haven't heard the fans once and hasn't even got anywhere near warm.

    Agreed. I have a work-issues MacBook Air in which the screen is on constantly, and I have probably 20 tabs open as well as have an external monitor connected. I rarely if ever hear the fan. The MBA is a work horse.

    I sure did. Ended up buying the 2019 16" Pro last week. Upgraded from a 2013 MBP that's still in working condition but badly needed to be replaced.

    I wanted a new Mac book for at least 5 years, I just bought my first Mac this past Monday. I went with the base 13" model. so far so so good but I will be supplementing the performance with a iPad Pro 11" before the end of the year. I'm on pins and needles with buying only 8gigs of ram and really that is my only complaint. I plan on trading this in next year for a model with 16 gigs of ram.(if I don't upgrade no other spec) I plan on making 4k movies(3 streams of 4k 30/60) with some light edits Final Cut using primary a iPhone 11 Pro max, pixel 3a,ipad 9.7 pro(soon to be replaced)

    so far the device has worked great
