Instead, we may be waiting until Apple's March event to see any new MacBook Pro. This gives Apple time to finish engineering components and may adjustments to the design as needed. Apple may have needed extra time to create the thinner scissor keyboard that has been rumored for the device.
I believe that this device would kept the USB-C only ports, maybe adding a 1-2 more due to the increased body size. The hope is that they would kept the same spacing as to kept capability with current dual port USB-C docks/dongles. If the device were to add more USB-C ports on one side, it may be possible to combine them to give more PCIe lanes to something like an eGPU.
When do you think we will see this device? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter, FaceBook, or Instagram @iKillTheApple
