    I'm interested in buying MBP but I don't know whether to wait a few more months if Apple will change it again. When do they usually update their laptops? June? or later? Is it a good idea to buy now? or wait? thanks

    As always... if you need it now, buy it now. If you don't, wait. :)

    Agreed.

    If you have the option to wait until later this summer, you'll have a better idea of what is available for the entire line-up including processor upgrades.

    I would at least try to hang in there until we see the first MacBooks which
    are supposed to debut next month.

    The Merom based models are guesstimated between June and October.

    I think this is the most overasked question of 2006. Agree?


    Anyway, I am waiting til the 17 inchers come out. (supposidly next tuesday or so). Also, if merom is being released earlier (a la June/July) I am waiting for that. I'm in no big rush but would like it before september.

    This may not apply to the MacBook Pros, but if you haven't seen it, it's a cool page:

    You will just ask yourself this question again later. There will always be something bigger and better around the corner. You just have to buy it when your ready and be happy with it. No use worrying about it.
