Hey guys, my current laptop is done. I can still use it...but the charger stops charging through slight movement (and my battery doesn't hold charges anymore so it instantly turns off). It is horrible for casual surfing but it is going to be worse once college starts. I've decided on the macbook pro (13 or 15 is still a decision that needs to be made). My question is, the new OS comes out in September. I can wait and get by if the specs will be pumped up. The buyers guide says the MBP updates about every 200 days...the time between now and the release of the new OS will make it close to 100 or higher depending on the launch date. Should I wait since I can afford to wait? I am mostly a casual user...but I do stray from any casual behaviors. I sometimes encode 1080p videos and might even have the urge to play modern games.....it needs to be able to handle it. That is why I am thinking if I can get more bang for the buck....then I should wait. I really don't think its good business practice for Apple to announce new specs and then buff them in another 4 months...but seeing that Apple keeps a low profile on release dates and what to expect...I wouldn't put it past them to bump up the specs. Thanks for the replies.
