    Hello everybody,

    I know that many of you are faced with the problem and question... Buy now or wait? I am one of them... and needing an answer. Here are the drawbacks and benefits of waiting:

    Benefits:

    better hardware
    more future friendly
    leopard maybe

    Drawbacks:

    Will be more expensive in the future, and im not exactly wealthy for a 15 year old...

    Could not be a huge upgrade such as lower class graphics
    Could be a touchscreen... which may or ma not be a drawback

    So... Answers anybody??? I know buy now if you need it... but there are other factors also.

    I've decided to wait. WWDC is right around the corner and the will announce any changes to the Apple line up. Plus this says I should wait to buy an IMac.

    So in other words, you still are indecisive. :D

    Well, DO you need it now? CAN you wait a couple months until WWDC? (I wouldn't wait any longer than that if you're looking to make a purchase sooner rather than later)

    I don't see why it would be more expensive in the future. New models will be roughly the same price as current newest models and the current models will get cheaper. Also, you will have more money in the future if you are actually saving some of it.

    As Apfhex, and everybody else, says: if you need it now buy it now. If you decide to wait, then wait until the next update. Otherwise, everyday you wait is just one less day you have to use it, and one day sooner that a new model will be announced. Of course, everyday you wait is also one more day in which you can save your money.

    I think a touch screen is unlikely. It's great for tiny screens but a nuisance for larger machines. There will be improvements in the next model, since that is the definition of an update. Decide how well the current model suits your needs and how disappointed you would be if a slightly faster model with slightly better graphics were introduced in the next 3 months. Your answer will be in there.

    It's like my dad used to say...

    If you don't go to the dentist, then you'll have to go to the dentist. :D

    or probably more appropriate...

    I thought I made a mistake once, but then I found out that I was wrong.

    Indecisive mean that that you cant decide, so you are basically saying you can decide twice.

    "Deside"

    Definition --

    1. Out of a high traffic area and into an area of low traffic.
    2. Not in the middle of things.
    3. Away from the action.

    The shopping cart was much less likely to cause damage in the parking lot when it was moved to deside.

    darren :)

    Maybe it's a problem that I have to deal with but these types of spelling mistakes in a forum like this drive me crazy.

    :confused:
