    I would say yes. If you buy now, you can get a free iPod touch (soon, a free printer too, I believe).

    Edit: in light of the post below - I will agree with angemon89 and say just wait til Monday to be safe.

    Monday will be an iPhone event. But a date for SL may be announced -- in which case if you want to get it for free you'd have to wait until it gets released (probably a few months from now). The best way to approach this is to buy if you need it now, if not, wait, but there's always something new around the corner.

    Duff-Man says...it is (as always) a *great* time to search the forums for the answer - after all, there's only been about a hundred threads in the last week or two....oh yeah! :)

    I'd hold off until next week to see of anything new will be announced. I doubt anything great, but maybe a speed bump or something. I'm hoping for a new iPhone. If so, wait a few weeks. If not, wait until you absolutely need it. :rolleyes: Even if you did buy one and a new one is released, I think Apple gives you 3 months to return it. I think they charge a 10% restocking fee. But if it's worth having the latest and greatest at the time then go for it. I would. That's what Apple wants you to do. :p

    If you really need it, buy now; if you merely want it, I'd suggest that you wait at least until after next week's event (which will more than likely focus on the iPhone) and then you will have a better sense of what is on offer.

    I have a MBP and it is an excellent computer, the best computer I have ever owned, so I expect that you will really enjoy it when you finally get it.

    Cheers and good luck

    I am afraid this is not true. You only have 14 days to return the product (if it is not faulty) and if you open it, you pay 10% of the price.

    As everybody said just wait until after the conference.

    This is a controversial question. Some people say yes it will be on Monday. Others say apple released products in the past about two weeks after the conference. I am having similar problems as I'd like to buy an MBA :cool:.

    It depends how long you can wait. If you can wait till September/November then wait but if you're waiting for a months or so, there is no reason to wait then.

    Every passing day will be closer for an update.

    haha, was I ever wrong!

    The new MBPs are fabulous deals, IMO.
