Hello, I've been an avid reader of these here forums and I must say that I like the community at macrumors very much. Well, here's my dillema of sorts. I'm currently pursuing my degree in Computer Science and am moving on to my 2nd year. I suffered through my 1st year without a computer because due to certain complications I ended up not buying the last revision of the Powerbook. Anyways, when the MacBook Pro (I still cringe at that name *shudder*) was announced I was all excited and wanted to immediately go out and order one. But since I live in Malaysia, the Apple resellers told me I had to wait quite awhile to get one. And, by that time my semester had ended and so I decided to wait awhile more. My new semester starts in September and I don't think I can live another semester without one so on to the question. When is the right time to switch? My friends have told me to wait until at least August since thats the time Intel will release Merom and hopefully, Apple will come out with a speed bump to their MBP's? Well, I'm actually quite happy with the current MBP's specs but after looking at the problems faced by some of the people here at macrumors and seeing all the different alleged defects that have surfaced I'm starting to worry about the build quality of this Rev A MBP. Another alternative offered by my some of my friends was that I buy a MacBook first as a cheaper way to enter into the Mac community. And when all the problems with the MBP's are resolved to just go out and buy whatever model is out there at that point in time. Though I see the wisdom in that but the integrated graphics on the MacBooks are really a deal breaker for me at this point all things else being more or less equal. So, what do you guys say?
