    Hey guys, I'm in need for a piece of advice.

    I turned 20 yesterday and got a 15" baseline model for my birthday, I really happy. This is my first Mac. :D

    Now to the question, I didn't open it yet. Should I keep it or return it and wait for the upgraded one.

    What would you do?

    Thanks in advance. Marvin.

    how long do you want to realistally wait to enjoy the new toy? the one in 2015 surely will be better, nothing has been confirmed on when or what the next model will be like

    enjoy life today not waiting for whats next, becasue with electronics you will never own anyhting if your always waiting for the next version

    That's true, but if the next one is around the corner the current model will be old and slow in comparison. :p

    rumors have the next one be a small processor bump, like 2.3GHZ for the base and 2.6HZ for the one up

    Alright, that sounds pretty nice. I'll wait until the new iPhone is released, maybe they will sneak in the update while updating the apple store for the iPhone. :)

    Even if there is a refresh soon, it will probably be just a small speed bump, probably not even enough for you to notice in day-to-day usage. But no one really knows when it will be. People are guessing soon, but we may not see anything until 2012. If I were you, I'd rip open that box and enjoy :) No sense waiting for the next best thing. Something will always come along...eventually.

    Enjoy your present. You will look very ungrateful to whomever was kind enough to give you such a nice gift.

    Hope you enjoy it, and welcome.

    For future reference, I find MacRumors' Buyer's Guide to be helpful for these types of decisions. Obviously most, if not all, of it is based on rumors, but at the very least it will give you an idea of the product cycles and give you good data on where each product is in its current one.

    The Guide is linked up top for your future reference.

    IMO, from rumors the next update will be under the shell. So as long as the unibody design doesnt change then why wait? Theres always some way to make the MBP faster and maybe just as fast as the next update.

    I wouldn't expect a huge update but it should happen soon.

    To be more accurate, 2.2Ghz for base and 2.4Ghz for next one up. Basically a 200Mhz speed bump. Rumors only of course, no guarantees that this will actually happen.
