When Apple was about the release last year's MacBook Pro laptops, it was pretty clear that fans will be seeing all the major changes Apple can bring to the laptop line. Before the latest MacBook Pro launch, the laptop series haven't been changed for a while so it was pretty certain that Apple will bring in high-end features. With that said, there's a good chance that the rumored MacBook Pro 2017 won't be too modified. Considering that the laptop line just got refreshed with new features, the 2017 edition could just be focused on upgrading its processors.
MacBook Pro 2017 Expectations
As per Forbes, the 2017 edition of the MacBook Pro will bring in more of a ripple rather than a wave. It was said that the Intel Kaby Lake processors will come to the laptop line and this should be the major change that's coming to the MacBook Pro this 2017. The 2016 version of the laptop has seen the arrival of the Touch Bar and Touch ID which actually received quite a mixed reaction from the people. Some liked the new features while others didn't. Nevertheless, the upcoming MacBook Pro 2017 may no longer possess such big changes.
In fact, even with the Kaby Lake architecture coming into the laptop line, MacBook Pro 2016 users may not exactly see a giant change in performance. This is because the processors found in last year's MacBook Pro isn't so bad either. So shifting from that to the upcoming ones won't exactly blow your mind.
MacBook Pro 2017 Conclusions
With that said, there's no big reason for MacBook Pro 2016 owners to grab the 2017 edition. For people who are yet to buy laptops, on the other hand, waiting for the MacBook Pro 2017 may be quite reasonable. That is, of course, if you don't mind paying the predictably high price tag.
Needless to say, Apple hasn't confirmed the arrival of the MacBook Pro 2017 yet. However, as per Mac Rumors, references to new models have been spotted in the MacOS 10.12.4 Beta which is why the rumor mill for the MacBook Pro 2017 has started. Popular KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the Kaby Lake-powered MacBook Pro will start its mass production by the third quarter of this year.
