Why you shouldn't buy a MacBook Pro this week

New products are always expected from WWDC, but this year the volume of rumours surrounding an update to Apple's laptop lineup mean you should hold off for now. Kuo even stated that a higher-end MacBook Pro, possibly a 15-inch model, would launch with 32GB of RAM late this year, which would all but make Apple's professional-grade laptops worthy of their moniker.

Most of the updates are expected to be iterative, internal improvements (meaning no design changes), but it'll certainly be advantageous for customers to pick up the 2017 model, should it arrive next week. But Apple will also unveil new hardware at the show, and there's one more piece of evidence that seems to indicate new MacBooks and iPads are going to be unveiled soon, as well as a new Magic Keyboard.

Earlier this week, ship dates for the 15-inch MacBook Pro slipped past June 5th, suggesting that the product is in for a refresh. It's believed these are new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros and a new 12-inch MacBook. With these MacBook Pro models becoming obsolete, it means that the owners will no longer benefit from fix support at Apple's Retail Stores as well as Authorized Service Providers.

Apple's holding its annual WWDC keynote beginning at 10 a.m. PDT on Monday, June 5.

The Republican president has also repeatedly expressed frustration with internal leaks coming from the White House. Bossie also said that he agrees with calls to end the daily press briefings at the White House.

This is not the time to plonk down your cash or points-earning plastic for a new Apple laptop.

The current MacBook Pro weathered a lot of criticism when it was announced but it has soldiered on none the less.

Not all MacBooks have the extended free shipping date. - As Kaby Lake processors are now widely available, it's not totally unrealistic to imagine Apple could be planning to refresh the 15-inch MacBook Pro at WWDC. The Cupertino-based company's decision of introducing a new model just eight months after the late 2016 variant, may not find favor with fans.

What about you? Are you eager for the release of the iPad Pro 2?
