Is it the right logic ?? Buying before it gets discontinued.

    Hi,

    I bought a Mac Book about two and half weeks ago as part of the eduction promotion. I still have the ibook i had gotten three years ago.

    I bought both computers at a "mature stage" in their evolution. Approximately, seven months after my ibook's purchase came out the first MacBook. A new kind of MacBook will in short be announced.

    I have preferred to get "evolved" modells because I think is a better choice. Do you also share this kind of choice ?? Just curious, kind regards,

    igmolinav.

    There is nothing wrong with buying a matured computer. I know a lot of people buy cars their last production year.

    It's a good form of logic, and is a great way to get less-buggy systems.

    The current MacBook case design is still very poor ... if I could take it back now, I would've waited a year just to get a different case design.

    Sadly this doesn't carry over to computer too often. We're not talking revolutionary changes here.

    The current design is great for most and it is very stable also.

    I wouldn't consider aluminum a revolutionary change with maybe a minor speed bump.

    Usually when I buy a new mac, I wait until the a refreshed model is released, then I buy the "old" model at a greatly reduced price...

    If it was a significant update (like MacBook from iBook), then I would buy the newer model....

    Ditto. Sometimes the "refurbished item" isn't really refurbished. It's just sold that way to move stock.

    Yeah, but I have save more $$ than I would have even buying a new "refurb"...There was an retailer near where I live that would drop the price a lot to get rid of them...
