Hey guys. I've been lurking around on this forum for a month or so but this is my first post. Anyway, I have a story and I want your opinion on it. I'm not looking for the regular "If you can wait, wait. If you can't, buy now." because I feel that this case is specifically different from others. For the past +2 months, I've been anticipating on buying the next generation MacBook Pro 13-inch to replace my old Dell laptop. It has been a huge pain waiting, not (only) because I want the new computer, but also because my current one is literally falling apart. The screen is loosely attached by 1 hinge, I have to hold it up most of the time. Random wires are sticking out. The whole bezel came off. It's really beyond all imagination, everyone who sees it can't help but stare for half a minute. It looks like I dropped it but I didn't, it's just from regular usage. I don't know how this ever happened, I'm always extremely careful with my gadgets, but it did and it's not the point of my post here. This laptop will have to last at least 5 years, and that's part of the reason I'm going with the (sturdy) aluminium MacBook Pro. However, today reports have turned up saying that Intel is recalling Sandy Bridge chipsets, the ones who would allegedly end up in MacBook Pros, because they were all faulty. The thing that bothers me about this is that not only I'll have to try to keep my current laptop alive for even longer (maybe even several months), it also opened my eyes: maybe instead of going for the newest tech, I should go with the things that have proven to work. That said, I also don't want to settle for a Core 2 Duo processor, so my current plan is to wait until tomorrow to see for the last time if the MBPs get a refresh, and if they don't I'm going to pony up for the base 15-inch model. Does this all make sense in my situation, or am I just overreacting to the Sandy Bridge recall news? What would you do? I'm sort of clueless here. This will be my first Mac and I want it to be absolutely awesome. Oh, one last thing because I've often seen people ask this around this board: I use my computer mainly for internet, website development (including graphics) and a bit of gaming (Minecraft, Portal...). Thank you very much in advance for the answers, please don't flame a newbie!
