Title may be somewhat misleading. I bought the new baseline 13" MBP online with a education discount and it's expected to arrive on Thursday. I'm wondering if I made a mistake and should just return it to an Apple Store when it comes. Here's the scoop: This past September (end of month) I picked up the baseline 2010 13" MBP. I had begun a graphic design internship and felt my ever-reliable, going-on 6 year old Powerbook, was holding me back. So, I bit the bullet. The thing is that I had back in May and June forgone upgrading to this very model, because I feared the Core2Duo - although lightyears beyond what I was using - was not particularly future proof. Adding fire to the flame, the very processor Core2Duo 2.4ghz-8600 was in the inaugural 2008 unibody Macbooks! Everyone always says that if the computer is running well, why consider upgrading? Well, my one is quick and does everything I want it to do today, but will it tomorrow? It's never a question of whether it suffices now, which it does, but will applications and such in the not so distance future exploit hyperthreading and, in general, take advantage of these substantial CPU advancements? Probably. To which you may retort, well why not just hold out to the next refresh? I'm a use-my-computer-til-the-hard-drive-stops-spinning kinda guy (although I will swap an SSD at some point), so the concept of leasing doesn't entice me. Furthermore, until the next refresh, I'll be conscious of any dink or scratch I may incur that could affect resale value, but otherwise wouldn't matter to me. So do you think it was right in making the upgrade now, while my computer still has a lot of time under warranty? Or should I send the new computer back when I take delivery of it? If I upgrade, you could see it as essentially a $100-150 glorified, 5-month computer rental. Note: I bought before selling to make migration easier.
