I start law school on Monday, and I'm torn as to whether or not I should wait for the Haswell rmbp release. I currently have an old HP laptop which is extremely slow and barely lasts an hour on the battery. The way I see it, I have two options: 1.) Buy the 1599 rmbp refurb through apple and upgrade once Haswell is released. If I choose this route, how much do you think I would end up losing, assuming I buy the new Haswell 15" base through the education store? 2.) Wait for the Haswell update and try to use my HP laptop This will be my first Mac so I would rather learn osx now than the middle of the semester. I'm set on the 15" rmbp, because the 15" screen is an absolute MUST for me TIA!!!
