I'm really in a pickle here. Here's the situation: I'm getting a MBP for college (the mid-range $2500 model, with student discount), but I feel that I am at a crossroads. With the montevina update just around the corner (June, if the rumors are correct), buying one now feels like a stupid decision. The MBP I'm getting is supposed to be a graduation present (I am paying for half BTW), so my parents are reluctant to buy until my graduation, which is June 4th. WWDC starts June 8th, just days after graduation, and the montevina MBP could very well be released then. On the other hand, that is a lot of waiting to do, and we don't know for sure when the montevina update is coming. My parents might buy it for me a bit earlier (if I beg and plead ), which would mean I get myself a new machine to mess with at an earlier date. Before I get to my point, here's what I do with my machine: - I'm majoring in graphics technology (aka graphic design), which means I need a powerful computer if I want to do work outside of class - I'm also a gamer, and I'd like a laptop that can perform favorably on the games I throw at it. Mostly I'm concerned about Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance. It's not playable on my current iMac (though the original SupCom is), and I'd like my future computer to play it well. The current MBP's ought to fair nicely, but an updated MBP would be even better. For these reasons, I am rather concerned with having the latest tech. Unfortunately, I'm also impatient I've been waiting so long to finally get my own computer, and it's really killing me. I CAN'T TAKE IT *huff *huff *huff...... Ok, so I don't mean to sound like a spoiled bastard, but I reall would like to have my computer as soon as possible, but I can wait if necessary. Which brings me (long winded, I know) around to my point: I have two options, and they have been battling each other in my mind like crazy. They are (yes, another colon): Option A: Wait. Montevina MBP's are almost certainly coming out at WWDC, just days after your graduation. Your parents would rather wait until then, so why don't you? Montevina will bring even faster processors, a FSB speed bump from 800 MHz to 1066 MHz, and state-of-the-art DDR3 RAM. Plus, you'll likely get a new video card (9600M GT maybe?), Blu-Ray, and to wrap it all up, an all-new case, redesigned specifically for all that new hardware. You don't really want to miss out on all this just because you were impatient do you? Make the right decission. You don't need the computer now, so just wait. You'll be happy you did. Get the computer you'd be truly proud of owning, rather than jumping the gun and getting a machine you'll only be disappointed with a few months later. Option B: If you can convince your parents, then why not buy now? It's a great machine. You'll get a fast laptop that will run everything you want it to run, and you'll get it sooner. It's a perfectly capable machine, why wait? If you keep waiting for the next best thing, you'll never ended buying the machine you want! Besides, do you really want to wait all this time just to end up with buggy revision A hardware? Not a chance. Just go for it. Buy it now. AAHHH!! It's a painful decision, and I'm not really sure what to do... so with that, my comunity, what do you suggest? Option A, or option B?
