    Hi all, today I just purchased the Macbook Pro 2.4 (a very generous gift.) Anyway, I've been watching this page, and I was surprised that say "Don't Buy - Updates soon".

    This is the first time i have an Apple computer and i dont know very well how apple updates their products.

    Do you advise me, I open my MBP because future updates will not be very important or I wait to come out the newly updated MBP.

    I hope you can help me!

    Thank you very much and best regards.

    Open it. Were still a ways off from a new one (1-3 months).

    It depends, do you really need it now? Or can you wait a few months? If you need it as soon as possible you might as well just open it and use it. But if you can wait then you might as well wait for the updates.

    Do you need it now? An update is expected to take place within few months so if you can wait, then I would return it and wait for the update.

    dude just use it. Unless you're some sort of hardcore power user, the updated that come out won't improve your computers performance by that much from where it currently stands now. So if I were you, I'd just use it man

    just use it, the 13" will likely still use C2D after the refresh due to paten disputes between intel and nvidia that prevents nvidia from making integrated graphic solutions for the ix series processors.

    It's an amazing machine. Open it and use it now if you need it. That is most people's advise- Get one when you need one, and enjoy it, because there is always a new machine just around the corner.

    Dude, don't open the box! That will detract from future resale value. Just keep the box in indirect sunlight and imagine how cool it would be to actually use it.

    I agree.

    To the OP...Open it and enjoy it now.

    Once you get your hands on it, you will love it!

    Here is the deciding question...do you DEFINITELY want to stick with the 13 despite the 15 having much more capability?

    The 15 is also a grand+ more, not nearly as mobile (those 2 inches make a lot of difference actually), and costs more to insure.

    The 'newer' 13 inch is not going to be 'like omgz it is a gazogavillion better timz den de lazt lolz'. Computer design doesn't jump, it steps. The 13 inch is the MBP mobility and price winner, it is probably not going to add on things like the better i7 Sandy Bridge systems for a variety of reasons.

    Furthermore, if a 13 inch comes out that is a billion times faster and more capable, you are going to pay a hefty price for it. Last time everyone was doing this, the top 13 went from 2.53GHz to 2.66GHz, both Core 2 Duo...while yes, it will probably be more dramatic than that, it is still a capable machine which will run for years. Add a SSD and overall performance will be superior to virtually everything without a SSD.
