    ...or is there still a pool of bad chips in assembly queues?

    Rumor on the streets is, any MBP manufactured after Feb 2008 will have an exploding GPU.

    I would advise you to buy while its still hot.

    Actually, around a million at last count.

    If you need it, buy; if you merely want it, wait. Is it safe? Safety is such a subjective concept. Once bought - especially if you have added Applecare - you are covered by warranty and/or Applecare should the machine malfunction and you can return it to have it repaired/replaced. I have a wonderful MBP which I bought last April and I'm pretty pleased with it. Cheers

    Do you need it now? If so just get it.

    If its not then wait for years, I hear the Sept 2010 model will just rip!

    I would wait too. Even though I'm not one to wait, this time I would say wait at least after the Sept. 9th event?
