The only reason I am starting this thread (and it is a bit out of the picture to ask), is because I will be purchasing a MacBook by the summer of 2009 for college. I believe that time (and the back to school promo) is the best bet if I would be buying the latest and greatest for the time being. Now, based on statistics from past refreshes of Apple notebooks, what can I expect for any small improvement bumps on the MacBook? Will we be looking at MacWorld 2009? (I doubt this because the redesigns were launched just 2 months ago). Maybe a safe bet is a refresh in 6 months, in April? That would give me 2 months in that cycle before I buy. If anyone has any good predictions or ideas, that would be awesome. This place has really influenced me, an all-time PC user, to finally make a switch. Thank you all!
