Hi guys, I am having a little dilemma and am seeking some help. I would like to purchase my father a new computer for his birthday in March. He has an iPod, iPhone, and iPad so I think it would be a good idea to round off his Apple collection. Currently he is using a Sony Vaio and it is on its last leg (10 minute battery life, cracked display, missing keys, runs hot, fan loud). I know that it has an i5 processor and 8GB ram. He is afraid that he computer hard drive will crash at any moment so everything is backed up to an external hard drive. I took a peak and he is using 330 GB out of 1TB storage. This computer is at least 4 years now. He usually use the computer to listen to music in iTunes, use MS Office, surf the web, watch youtube/movies, as photo storage, and maybe a little photo shop every now and then but nothing too serious. I am a little conflicted what specs the computer should be. I know he is interested in a 13 inch MBP model for portability reasons. Any suggestions on a good combo of spects that would be best? Also, is it worth waiting until the new models are out to purchase? I dont know time frames that the new MBP come out. Are they expected this year? It so, any estimated time frame? Thanks for any help.
