    A guy is locally selling a 17" MacBook Pro. For $2000
    Here is the ad.

    Macbook pro 17" antiglare screen
    2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X2GB
    128GB solid-state drive
    MacBook Pro 17-inch Hi-Resolution Antiglare Widescreen Display
    Backlit Keyboard
    Apple Remote Control
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512MB

    I had planned on waiting till the new machines come out and getting a 15".
    I went really low and offered him $1500, I figured if i could nab it for that it was a no brainer. He rejected it, but i think he may go a little lower maybe $1750-1800, he seems a little desperate for cash.

    What do you guys think? I just dont want remorse if the new laptops are momumentally better.

    Wait the week. If new Macbooks come out, there will be plenty of used ones for sale shortly after. Also refurbished.

    Your situation depends on your needs. If your needs require more power, wait. However, given that you don't drastically change your needs, the present MBP will work for a foreseeable future.
