This is the official thread about how to control your impulsiveness to buy a MBP even though you want to wait for the upgrade. We will get you through this! Here is one idea... A friend of mine told me something today which was amusing but very sensible. He wants a 13 inch MBP loaded, but is torn due to its coming update. But, he needed a computer right then and their, in the immediate. Q) So how did he avoid having to buy a MBP currently only to be upset when it gets upgraded shortly after? A) By purchasing another laptop He bought a used laptop on Craigslist for $150 and is using it until the new MBP comes out. Once it does, he will sell the used laptop, (and honestly I think he will get $150 out of it so he would not take any financial loss), and he gets what he wants. Whatcha think? It sounds ridiculous, but if you want the update but need a computer ASAP, it does allow you to get both options fulfilled. What other advice do you have to cope with the pain of waiting to purchase the MBP even though you want one soooooooooooo bad?
