Okay, here's a question for everyone who, like me, decide a very long time ago to buy a laptop but put off that purchase to wait for Merom. 1. How long ago did you decide you would be buying a laptop? 2. If you had know then that in mid-October it still wouldn't be out, would you have waited? Waiting for it has had an interesting effect on me. I was absolutely sure when the Macbook came out that I wanted one. I was ready to buy in August, but decided to wait for Merom. Well, after about a month went by, I just wasn't that excited about it anymore. Now I'm questioning if I even need a new computer. I might just put it off another half-year. How 'bout you? What are your thoughts?
