I'm a junior in high school buying my first laptop, as well as my first Apple product... needless to say, I'm excited. I had been hoping that Apple would come out with their new design by September (start of school for me), but obviously there will still be a little wait. I love the black Macbook - not a white fan - and thus would get that model if I was buying one of the current generation models. The grease factor worries me, a little, but I'm not vain enough to have that dissuade me. My question is this: I've heard that due to issues not having a chance to be resolved, and the design not having a chance to be refined, purchasing a first gen Apple product is a bad idea... should I then go for one of the current models? I need the laptop within the next two-three months. Obviously everything's kind of a crapshoot right now, and there are only conjectures about what the new Macbooks will look like, but is there anyone who really WOULD strongly advise against getting a new first gen? Is there anyone who can already see other advantages for getting a current model? Also, I'm assuming that once the new gen comes out, the current models will be cheaper - does anyone have any guesses on how much cheaper, and how widely available they might be? I'm lost and alone in the world of product theorizing, save me!
