    Next year I'll be leaving for college, and I'm planning on getting a MacBook Pro (the $2500 model). I won't be leaving til August, and I already have the money to buy one. Should I go ahead and buy it now, or will apple most likely release a newer model by August?

    If you can wait. At the very least you will get a free ipod in the summer when they start the promotion again. At most you'd get the ipod plus a newer model. If you don't need it now, it's always good to wait. However, you probably want to get it a month or so before you leave to get everything set up properly and make sure there are no issues.

    Do you want it now? Then buy it now. Would you rather wait? Then wait. Kind of difficult for us to say whether someone should or shouldnt wait for new models, but I've found the Buyer's Guide helpful.

    im going to college in august also i and i decided to wait for a couple of reasons


    -possibility of a redesign
    -greater possibility of an upgrade
    -free ipod deal

    Supposedly a new form factor is coming in June/July, so you might as well wait if you don't need it right now. If nothing else, you should be able to get a deal on the current models as they are phased out of stock.
