    Hey everyone!

    I've been thinking about getting a Mac for a long time and I finally decided to go for it. Basically what I'm concerned about is the fact that I don't really know the basis on which apple releases new/updated products. So what I'm trying to ask is when is going to be the next upgrade of macbooks? I just don't want to buy a mac month before a release of updated version.

    My second question is about the magic mouse.I will be using the macbook connected to a bigger screen quite often. My current mouse is quite good, logitech g600, obiously the numpad capabilities are limited on mac, but i can set them on the onboard memory of the mouse on windows based machine. Will I be missing a lot if I don't get it? My dad has an iMac and after so many years of using bulky gaming mice the magic mouse feels kind of weird but i guess that's just a matter of habit. My main concern is paying 60 euros for it when the gesture features aren't that necessary.

    Thanks for all the answers! :)

    Look under the Buyers Guide tab for ideas about when to buy and not buy various products. All the MacBooks are mid cycle so it's a good time to buy. Don't expect a significant upgrade until the next gen Intel processor is out.

    It took me a little time to get used to the Magic Mouse. You have to use it differently than most Windows mice. I love the touch sensitive surface and use gestures for much of my work. I have had to temporarily abandon my Magic Mouse in favor of a trackpad as my right arm/hand is out of service due to shoulder surgery. I found the trackpad was easier left handed than the mouse.

    Well I'm not sure but I read that broadwell will not ship until 2015 and even then the main difference apart from the size of the chip will be in power consumption and even though that's nice I'm more concerned about performance so I think I'll get it now :)


    But when i looked on to the buyer's guide it says that macbook pro is approaching the end of its cycle, how accurate are these estimations?
