    Hey people..

    First, i'm very bad to english, so please don't kill me.. :)

    I live in Denmark, and i have decided to buy a Macbook Pro 13".. But you guys think it's stupid to buy a new one now? When u think the new Macbook comes?

    I am very much in doubt, so please help me. :)

    Thanks..
    Jonas..

    13" not till June at the earliest would be the best guess
    15" could within a month best guess

    both are just guess because nothing is confirmed

    i dont think buying now is stupid because they are still great machines

    If you need one now buy one now. If you can wait a few months wait. Pretty simple logic.

    No, they will most likely be priced the same. However if you settle for a 2011' you might be able to find one of those fairly cheap once the new ones are released.

    What do you intend to use your mac for?

    a 13" works well for school and facebook, but... games might be so so depending on what types of games you are talking about. :)

    I'd wait for a new 15" MBP with a dedicated GPU if I were you, if you're at all interested in high-end gaming.

    That said, the HD4000 should be able to play most new titles at acceptable speeds at lower resolutions and/or lower detail settings, making it useful in emergencies, or if you can get hold of the games for free. ;) If, on the other hand, you will be investing significant amounts of money in getting new games with great reviews and you want to be blown away by the graphic detail, then it's a no-brainer: you need a dedicated GPU, period.

    Still, integrated graphics have come a long way since the days of the GMA900, which didn't have the power to play any high-end games at any settings.

    The early 2011 macbook pro 15" refurbs might be a better idea since they come with a dedicated gpu and not that much more than a fully loaded 13".

    The truth is that the 15" and 17" is too expensive for me(I'm a student ^^ ) Only if the 15" prices goes down i can buy one.

    I think the 13" is fine for me, and i know i can play games as Football manager and Diablo 3.. I dont need the best graphic in th games..

    I hope it comes soon, because i dont have any computer for myself.. :)
