Are you waiting until Jan for the possible MBP update, or are you buying now?
Buy it NOW if you need it, if not then buy whenever the new model comes out.
I was originally going to buy one this month, but I decided to wait--I have nothing to lose really....I don't need it urgently, so 2 months makes no real difference to me...though I will need it by the beginning of the year--February at the latest, so if the update doesn't come in January I will buy the current model anyway...yeah I may feel a little bad when the new ones come out probably the day after I get it but whatever...the SR MBP is a good machine....if it does come out, well then it will have been worth it!
i cannot wait any longer with my windoze machine....
I ordered a 15", 2.6ghz, 200GB MBP on Nov. 1. Regardless of what comes out in the next 6 months, I'll have a really nice laptop to take on the road. When something significantly more attractive comes out down the road (probably this summer, but who really knows) I'll let them work the bugs out before I consider buying it. By that time I will have enjoyed the use of this really fine machine, probably for the better part of a year. These machines always have good resale value, so I throw it on ebay and make a move when it makes sense. So while some people wait, and wait, I'll be enjoying my new MBP.
You can always make the argument to wait: January for Penryn (probably delivers in February), or next Spring/Summer for the new chipset... it never ends. Of course, that's part of the fun, isn't it?
Good reasoning! I'd probably keep my MBP for the next 3 years (until AppleCare expires).
Amen to that!
Orderd my 15" MBP SR 2,6 GHz on monday.
It's being Assembled in China as we speek...
There you go, thread over.
Dang, they work crazy hours over there....
Congrats on the new machine! I'm buying in Jan!
Buying now. Majority of bugs have been addressed in the current year models. I also have until Jan. 8 (not including the 14 days after) to return it if I change my mind.
If the new release is that much greater, I'll just wait until rev.B or C so there are no surprises.
I'm waiting for the fictional MBP 11-13". It'll have been two years since the move to Intel in January, if there's no sign of it at Macworld, hell I'll just go with whatever's available.
I am going to get one before the next semester starts in Jan. Probably going to wait and see what is announced at MacWorld.
44/56 close results. Looks like Apple will sell even more stuff in Jan if it releases a new MBP
I'm waiting until january, but don't know what i'll do if there isn't an update. I really need a new laptop by march for my internship (12" PowerBook is getting too small).
