My several-year-old PC recently died of a hard drive failure, and all I'm left with is my six-month-old netbook (Asus 1000HA, 1.6 ghz atom, 1gb ram, 160 hdd, windows xp, etc). I'm about to enter college, and feel I'll really be needing a proper laptop. I'd like to capitalize on this and get a (refurbished) macbook pro 13, but I'm worried that I'd be buying right on the cusp of new hardware releases or price drops (or even just upgraded hardware) - especially with the holiday season coming soon, and windows 7's release imminent. I'm probably overthinking this, but, any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
