Hey everyone.. I would like a mac so I can use Logic 8 for audio/softsynth recording and mixing. I'm trying to decide between these two options: Finance a White MB 2.4 GHz over the period of 24 months (no interest) 1214+tax or Finance a new MBP over the period of 24 months (again, no interest) 2149+tax...brings it to about 2500 if I round it off. I really think it would be a better option to just get the new one. I want to be able to use this for the next 5 years at least! Snow Leopard is coming out, and it seems more audio interfaces and etc and going to use FW 800 in the future. Only thing is, I would like a mac asap and don't feel like waiting around for Rev. B or C of the new MBP's. I think it would be wise though. Would it make a bit of sense to just keep the White MB (I have it now, might return it tommorrow), pay for it for a few months (while deciding if I can afford the newer MBP) -and then sell the MB? Put the money into the new one? Will the White MB's resale value drop in early 2009? Something tells me it's a bit stupid to finance a MB when for 40 dollars more a month, I can have a newer MBP. Financing the newer one for $1000 more just seems like a somewhat daft thing to do "in this economy". I would be a student going into late 2009 as well. Thanks in advance! P.S I know the 'classic' mbp is, in theory, the better option. I had one at a great clearout price. Returned it because apps were crashing and it was freezing. Oh, the joys of the NVIDIA 8600.
