    I'm about to join the Mac World and purchase a 13in. MacBook Pro with the i7 2.9gHz processor (the latest model, I believe).

    I realize that Apple will be releasing a new line of notebooks very soon, and was wondering if it's worth waiting? What will be upgraded in the new line that I won't get with this model that I plan on buying? And will I still be able to get a comparable computer (hardware & specs-wise) for the same price (approx. $1799.00)?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    For 1,799 USD you can get a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display, unless you want 16 GB RAM and a bigger SSD.
    As for what the new upgrades will bring, which is more likely to appear in late summer, early autumn, is a faster integrated graphics processor (IGP) and better battery life, if the classic MBP gets continued.


    Maybe have a look at Advanced Search or MRoogle to find similar threads while you wait for more answers:

    More like July. But we will find out in a few days. The OP would be doing himself a favor by waiting because he can either get the new machine or a price break on the current machine...In just a few weeks

    I would also agree with this advice.
