    I'm just waiting for my ADC Student Membership to be approved, faxed them my ID and schedule today.

    My questions are:
    1) Should I wait for this 8-core one coming out?
    2) I'm looking at getting the MBP and keeping it for a couple years, so should I just go ahead and get it now?
    3) I've heard that nothing else spectacular will be coming out soon, is that true?

    I understand the whole thing that electronics will always get better :)

    thanks for any and all advice!

    Go ahead and buy...the machines were just updated. The 8-core chips aren't coming to laptops anytime soon. There will always be incremental improvements around the bend, so now is a great time to buy.

    If you haven't already seen it, the URL below will give you a best-guess as to when Apple will next update its products:

    Looks like everything was either "just updated" or "mid-product cycle". Based on history, it doesn't look like any new updates will be coming soon.
