Hi guys, So here's the deal. I'm a 16 year-old kid (junior in high school). Right now I have a Windows PC with Vista (AMD 64 3400+ Processor, 200 GB HDD, 2 GB memory) that's a little over three years old; it's still holding up well, and still suits my needs well...I haven't really run into any situations where I really needed a faster processor at all, since this computer's not too shabby at all. In addition, Vista isn't bad at all--I have no qualms with it, so PLEASE don't turn this into a Mac vs. PC debate. However, we only have one PC (this one) in the house, and I was looking to buy my own computer--since it's getting a little difficult to manage 3 people on one computer. To that end, I got $1600 for my birthday, with which I could buy a new computer. I've been looking to buy a MacBook since then; obviously, I was psyched when the new ones were released last month. A few notes about what I need: -It's gotta be a notebook--not a desktop. I really want the portability and the convenience of a notebook. -I want a Mac :-D -My needs are primarily web surfing, Word documents, iTunes, etc. (typical student stuff), as well as some video and music editing--although I'm by no means a professional and don't plan to be. -I DO NOT need a notebook right now...although I'd certainly enjoy one now. The NEEDING will come next year (senior year); buying now would bring me the convenience of a laptop, but it's not really "mission critical" for a little whle. -I plan to keep this laptop for as long as it lasts--hopefully 4-6 years, until I graduate from college. -Like everyone here, I'm looking for the best bang for my buck So here's my question. Should I buy a new 2.4 GHz MacBook now...or wait till Nehalem comes out next year? I am aware that Nehalem benchmarks show huge improvments over today's generation, but keep in mind my relatively modest needs--no, I don't play Crysis or edit multiple 1080p movies at a time. Should I wait for the (obviously huge) jump to Nehalem, or just bite the bullet now? (Again, I want this to suit my needs as long as I'm in college--the next 4-6 years). Thanks for all the help, guys.
