    Back to school students looking for upgrade to Function Keys 13" Macbook Pro. Where is it Apple ? Hope, it is exactly like it's 13" counter part except that Touch-Bar.

    Apple might upgrade that with a two core chip. Maybe. Personally I would prefer they come out with a new, flexible MBA instead of the non touch bar MBP. Product lines will be better differentiated. Heck the old design with a new chip and Retina display would do.
