I'm planning to buy a mbp sometimes at the end of the year. I can wait until early January though. But looking at wikipedia - macbook pro, the timeline suggests that a newer model will be released sometimes in early Q1... So I don't want to buy a mbp close to its 'expiry date'. Is there any news (not rumours) that they will update/new mbp? Also, i've never seen apple do this but - do they sell older stock models at a cheaper price in apple stores?
