    The rumours suggest 14" and 16" MacBook Pros with M1X chips.

    What else are you expecting or hoping for?

    My 2018 15" i7 MBP work Mac is due a refresh next August so I'm really hoping for an Apple Silicone 16" version as I love my M1 Air.

    Going to probably get a pimped out 14" with 32GB ram and 1TB storage. Can't wait.

    They’ll put out the remaining 27” iMac, 14/16” MBPs and Mac Mini to retire the remaining Intel models leaving the Mac pro the last Intel mac standing.

    Perhaps a decent mouse but we can dream… :p

    Is this likely after the iPad announcements back in September? I would have thought that if they were ready to release them, they would have announced it back then.

    This is the big one for me, my 2017 27" iMac is due for a refresh. My colleagues couldn't wait and have just pulled the trigger on the new 24" models but I think I'd miss the bigger screen.

    I'm really interested in the new 16" rumours, especially if they remove the TouchBar and reintroduce some of the missing ports. My 2015 15" MBP is starting to show its age.

    It's not just the screen, the M1 iMac graphics aren't good enough for me. There are a couple of games I play and although decent, it's just not up to it. I'm really keen to see what they're going to do with the GPU on the new models.

    Sigh….. if they release a 14” MBP with a faster M1 I’m going to have to hammer my bank account again…….

    I'm really looking forward to a 14/16 MBP refresh although I doubt I'll buy one (he says now).
    I still really enjoy using my current 16 MBP and it handles everything I throw at it. Obviously an Apple silicone version would be nice but not at the price it's going to be. I can't see a new 16 being cheaper than the current model meaning we're looking at £2400 minimum - I highly doubt I could justify that to the Mrs having spent £2k on my 16 in May last year!
    A 14 may actually be more appealing, in that, I could at least justify the size and weight savings plus it will be considerably cheaper.

    Agreed.
    A left field punt from myself based on absolutely nothing whatsoever but could there be a new Mac Mini? Maybe a MM Pro or some such? I just think the previous Mini was so well received and offered decent value for money I think a Pro version might suit a lot of people. I know the current Mini can be specc'd up but stick an M1X/M2 (whatever it will be), a few extra ports and ability to run multiple displays and it could be a winner. Throw in a new colour/updated design language as well.

    M1X Mini's and iMac's (30"+) with 32/64GB and decent graphics would be awesome :cool:
