    What do you use it for? If you don't have critical need for a Mac Pro right now, you could return it and wait. Maybe get an iMac in the meantime to hold you over?

    You give no information about your needs, so it's hard to answer your question.

    or get a cheap dell inspiron 620 with 2nd gen i5 processor for about $599 from microcenter and buy the new MP when its out. Can't think of a cheaper deal than this...

    The chances of a 'refreshed' MP before Q1 2012 are slim-none.

    However, if you want to pursue a return you best get the process rolling soon. i'm pretty sure refunds are only granted within 14 days of purchase.

    cheers

    I use my '09 for video production, and it will be plenty strong for at least a year or two more. I don't let myself get hung up on having the newest one every time they change things. You'll drive yourself mad if you do. :)

    I'd guess Thunderbolt on the next one. How important would that be for you?

    I think it is probably a bad move, as the design is a year old, and new ones would be coming soon. Sure it might be ok for your needs, but if you had waited you will probably be able to get a better computer for the same money. That being said, if you need it to make money NOW, then it isnt a bad move.

    Generally speaking, one can look at the MR buyers guide and get a good idea on when to buy.
