I know there's lots of threads on this but I just need advice on this I'm not sure whether to buy a 17" Macbook Pro now or whether I should wait. I know I'll be gutted when the 2012 model comes out if I spend so much on a Macbook Pro now... but if I'm always going to be wanting the newest thing then I'll be waiting forever. On the other hand, I wanted to buy the Macbook Pro on the day it gets refreshed, then I get the latest and greatest for longer. But I do need it now. I have the funds for the 17" Macbook Pro now... The 17" Macbook Pro has a solid and well built design and if Apple changes the design there may be issues/problems with it.
