    I have noticed that the apple products like Ilife have got cheaper every year. I want to upgrade macbooks, because mine is out of date really bad. it's o6 intel core duo, not even core 2 duooo... So I want a laptop that will stay into date and be really compatible for a while, but I'm a teen and the only laptop I can afford that's apple is the 13 inch macbook pro, but there isn't even an I processor in that one yet. There are huge rumors about the next one coming this march. Should I just wait and save even more along with my christmas money to buy it? o do they not change in price? Thanks! and also, FoxConn has made it official that the Ipad 2 will be announced in 100 something days, will that go down in price also? Thanks! and if the macbook pro isn't a good idea, what other APPLE computers should I wait for to come out.

    Thanks!

    Historically the MBPs don't change price from year to year.

    It may actually get more expensive, depending on the amount of changes that are made.

    I'm voting (and also hoping) the stay they same price. I like the price on the base model 13". I wouldn't mind seeing a slight drop on the 15" though, from 1799, maybe to 1499ish. But I honestly don't really see it happening. Maybe 1699, but I still doubt it.

    iLife is cheaper, but they only updated iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand. They skipped iDVD and iWeb updates.

    This, I wouldn't be surprised if they upped the Apple Tax though...

    For UK buyers, there is also the issue of VAT increasing to 20% in 2011.

    Are you wanting to get a new MacBook because yours no longer fulfills your needs, or just because you think yours is out of date?
