I was going to buy my 12th-grade daughter a MacBook in July 2009, before she heads off to college. But $1650 has unexpected fallen into my lap (from unused leave from my last job) and it's burning a hole in my wallet! So I've urged my daughter to let me buy her the MacBook now; she can enjoy it an additional 9 months. But she's concerned that if she accepts my offer, she'll miss out on any improvements that come along before July. I've explained that... The new aluminum MacBook is the last major improvement we're likely to see before Fall 2009, Her MacBook will be the faster model (so she'll have the backlit keyboard) with a full complement of RAM, and I'm buying it from an eBay Mac dealer who will configure it with a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive, making it reasonably futureproof. Still she resists. I fear that if I don't buy it for her now, I'll do something foolish like use it to pay bills. Help!!
