Hi! Newbie here. I am looking to buy a new MBP and have several questions. I am currently using a 2005 powerbook G4 that has been very good to me (fingers crossed). It seems though it maybe time to let her have some rest. My question is is now a good time to buy the new MBP or should I wait? When I looked over the buyer's guide update cycle it seemed that it may be possible for a new model to be released/announced in Oct. Do people think this is possible or likely? Uses: I will be entering into a doc film production class where I have access to machines with FCP however, I will be looking to do editing (HD footage) on my own machine. I also do some photo editing, as well I am a heavy media consumer and will be writing papers and doing extensive research archiving. Machines: I am deciding between this ready to buy option available at my school 15", 1280 x 800 dpi resolution, 2.66GHz Intel Core i7, 4GB ; 500GB 5400-RPM Serial ATA HD, Intel HD Graphics5 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M with automatic graphics switching, 512MB GDDR3, or configuring the order (also through my school) with a better display and the 7200rpm HD I am also open to waiting until October in case new models come out and purchasing a mac mini just for paper writing/media viewing. The reason for this is I would eventually like a Mini to hook up to my TV/entertainment system. (I know this doesnt get me the free itouch, but I dont really need that anyway) Thanks for any and all advice or opinions! Apologies if this is in the wrong place or too long-winded.
