    if you want one now, just buy one now!

    i had to wait for mine until i got birthday money a couple of years ago, luckily osx 10.5 had just come out and the macbooks had just been updated. i would have bought one regardless. they got updated only a few months after, but i really couldn't care less :)

    It's a reasonable time to buy the MacBook. And like someone in here said, if you need it now, don't wait!

    Your better off just buying one or your gonna be waiting for awhile, the only updates anytime soon will probably be a bump in speed and maybe hard drive capacity...but even that probably won't be happening for awhile.

    I think you should wait till 2015 because the Macbooks then will have the performance on today's Mac Pro's in a mobile body... *tsk tsk

    Seriously though, if you want to buy a Mac go buy it. If you don't need it right now... wait till whenever they decide to update their products... until the specs meet your preference... No one can give u a definitive date of when they will be refreshed, cuz only The Jobs knows and he doesn't even spill the beans even to his wife.

    If I had read all of the posts that told me to get one if i needed one, i would be using a blackbook instead of my aluminum MacBook...but with that said, a new update would require a long wait... depends on YOUR needs.

    The thing you should know about Apple or any other computer manufacturer company is that they will always be coming out with something new. If you buy a brand new product that has just be out you should expect something newer to come out in 6 to 8 months time. If you are happy with the current system and think it will serve you well then get it and dont think of whats coming up next.
