    hey everyone...I've been accepted for graduate school and will buy a mac...
    just a question of When....
    there should be an update Jan/Feb correct?....and the next update after that would be oct/sept?
    when is the promotional period usually? June -Sept?

    can someone suggest the *best* time to buy....

    I currently have a broken down <10 min battery life laptop....and I know everyone says buy when u need it...but i wouldnt need it til next fall even though i want to buy it now....

    It seems prudent to wait until MacWorld '08 in January to see what new product announcements are made. After that you may want to buy.

    It would give you time work learn the new platform, too, so that when you enter graduate school you won't be learning the Mac OS at the same time you're trying to learn new coursework.

    I would leave it until July or August, you never what will happen between now and then .. :)

    You will get to grips with the Mac OS very quickly.
