    What do the 2012 MBPs have that you don't see in the current 2011 MBPs?
    Can you wait two to six more months?


    Maybe have a look at Advanced Search to find dozens upon dozens of similar threads:

    Buy what you need, when you need it. Chasing the next update is a pointless effort, since there will always be a "next update", no matter when you buy.

    If you're asking, then you probably don't need one now and can wait.

    Don't wait just because it will be "better". There is always something better around the corner, and the difference between the late 2011 model and the 2012 model won't be much to wait on.

    I was hearing the new 2012 MacBook Pro would be getting a much better screen and GPU?

    I'd say wait, the new WiFi ac should be on them and this could be one of those features you'll want in the near future. With ac it will replace cables and you'll be able to stream 1080P movies without the lag, this is what I'm waiting for. Normally I wouldn't wait unless there was a big update like this.

    I currently own a white MacBook 5,2 that is slow. I really want a new one but the fear is what the next version will have and when it comes. I would hate to buy one and then in 2 months a new one comes out. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

    well if the new pro comes out in 2 months i gonna hate myself. but if it comes out in 6 months or so. then i don't care.
