I'm a newbie to this forum but I've gone through lots relative threads. I understand that 'if you need it, then buy it', but honestly I'm a poor student so I really need your professional opinion I'm currently staying in my home country (Hong Kong) but will be leaving in 3 weeks to Sydney, so I have to make up my mind in the end of this week. I've been waiting for the 'refresh MBP' like many others in this forum, and I can't tell how disappointed I am. Since I'm still in college, I can only get a new laptop with installment which my family will be paying it. So I really need something that can last for like 3-4 years and would help my study. I'm doing a Design Computing course which will need to use a lot of Adobe software including AE, Pr and Final Cut Pro. I'll learn to develop iPhone/iPad apps in the coming year, some data visualization and human-computer interaction stuff as well, so I really want a better laptop (current one is a 3 years-old Fujitsu Lifebook. I'm lucky that I can sleep in Mac labs to finish my 3D project last year). So I really need some opinion from you guys, whether I should (1) give up on getting a MBP this time, wait till a refresh one n get it next year (yes, Next Year = 2011, cos I only go back to HKG once a year D; ) (2) get the current MBP, which may upgrade anytime, but then I don't need to sleep over in Mac labs to get my work done Sorry if my question looks stupid but I really can't decide..
