    i dont want to spend all that money and then regret it in a week...

    my advice: Wait till tomorrow (Tuesday). If the MBPs aren't updated (like MacRumors claims they might), just order the computer. It's an amazing machine, and nobody really needs the new processor.

    If you keep waiting, you'll never get a new computer! Get an MBP, load it up with RAM, and have fun .

    EDIT: P.S.-> make sure you want a MBP. what do you need it for? I find the MacBook packs a very similar wallop for a much smaller price.
