I'm just waiting for my ADC Student Membership to be approved, faxed them my ID and schedule today. My questions are: 1) Should I wait for this 8-core one coming out? 2) I'm looking at getting the MBP and keeping it for a couple years, so should I just go ahead and get it now? 3) I've heard that nothing else spectacular will be coming out soon, is that true? I understand the whole thing that electronics will always get better thanks for any and all advice!
