    yeah I would really like one soon. I'm sick of waiting also but you really can't quit so close to a revision.

    Buy it if you need it.

    The NVIDIA problems are exaggerated IMO.

    *Sniffles* B-but, l-l-last week you said it would be "either today or next week" :'(

    Yeah, it's kind of annoying, but you might want to wait a month or two for the revision. Hopefully no overheating/crapping out issues with the new MBP....

    okay.. here's the deal. and listen close because this applies to life as well. There are people who just like to bitch and whine... agonize over decisions and then feel buyers remorse after having somehow tripped and fallen against their mouse and clicking 'buy'.

    apple is a very decent company that makes very good products.. they mess up yes, but rarely do they not make it right in the end. if you need and like a macbook pro get one. if you do not need and do not like one do not.

    don't base your decision on people whose free time *I wish to god I had* that pollute this board with sky is falling crap because their daddy didn't love them. and for heavens sake don't base your opinions on idiots, because idiots are *always* the loudest.

    cheers

    If one was to wait, who's to say that a revision will cure the woes? It's possible the next one will not be any better or perhaps worse?

    So you think that people giving opinions / advices on this forum are idiots ?? I think there is nothing bad on giving people oneself opinion.

    It always is a good advice. Buy if you need it, wait if you can.
