    I ordered a new MBP from macmall a week ago. No tax in indiana and free overnight. I also got an additional 3% off (which if I recall was around $80). I chose to upgrade because I was tired of waiting and the laptop this MBP replaced was about dead and I need it for school.

    edit: note that if you're looking at the base late 2011 15", the early 2011 2.2GHz is better and costs less.

    Buying now is a good way to go. The current models are well de-bugged and perform very well.

    Remember newer isn't always better. Apples history reveals the first of the newly redesigned products are often somewhat problematic. The second release are always better. IE: the 2010 MBA, vs the 2011 which was greatly refined.

    Enjoy your new Mac :)

    Add me to the list. Got my 13" from MacMall, and could not be happier.

    Also did not want to risk being a Beta Tester if the new MBP's have issues, as did the first generation of MBP unibodies.

    I got the base 13" and upgraded the memory to 8 GB from Amazon. Purchased it from MacMall, but went through Appleinsider's website, which saved me an additional $60.00

    I only use it for legal research and writing briefs, so the base 13" has more than enough power for my needs.

    I was about to pull the trigger on a 15" late 2011 when I read this. What do you mean the earlier one is better?


    I plan on going with the 15" 2011 (early or late still not sure)!

    It's really smart to buy a last generation machine for full price.

    Well done.

    Way to be a buzz kill... not everyone cares about resale value or being at the bleeding edge of performance.

    I say, enjoy your Macbook Pro's!

    Congrats :)

    I don't need one now, so I can wait. My 13" MBP is C2D is holding up fine, but I am anxious for the new model. My expectations is summer so if they release it before that, all the better. If not I didn't lose anything.

    Enjoy your new machine, Sandy Bridge based laptops are fast, no question

    Its not like your MacBook Pro will overnight stop working or not be any good if a new one came out tomorrow.

    Bought a refurb 13" last week, bargain at the price I got it (well, by the extortionate prices in the UK at least).

    Need it, get it.

    Play the waiting game, you'll play it forever because there will always be something better coming out.

    I sure would like to have it when diablo comes but I think Ill hang tough even if not, I mean I have already waited for a good while so should be able to wait a bit more. If I were to settle for a current Id want the high end for slightly better grapics and cpu, unfortunately there is no decent sales to make afford the high end 1. So theres good reason for me to hang tough. :)

    You mean June which is closer to two months. Apple would never release now their stock just got a boost from iPhone sales. They'll wait as long as possible now to keep the stock momentum going. Will be a perfect shot in the arm so to speak.

    I've had mine for about a month or so now. I too was apprehensive about waiting.

    If Apple had released info on the new MBP, and I knew the release date I'd probably have waited :p

    Yeah the not knowing is frustrating.
