    hey so i need some help. what do you guys think the likelihood of a small mbp coming out by JANUARY. they ordered lots of 13.3" LED screens, so i have to assume its coming sometime?

    i'm going away to rome for a semester. i'll be back in december, and go back to school in january. by the end of january, i want to have a new laptop. right now i really want a new laptop but its more of a want than a need...

    1. i can wait if needed, my laptop with memory upgrade will suffice, which is why i'm asking about future releases post-10.5
    2. what i really want is a small mbp. i'd be ecstatic with ANY mbp, but what i really want is a small one. i have a 17" dell beast right now and I cant stand it, portability is #2 on my list of priorities, right below #1, it being a mac :p

    can you guys give me any suggestions? advice?

    thanks

    Just wondering, where did you hear Apple ordered lots of LED 13.3 screens? I would expect that those would make their way into the MacBooks...

    i thought i saw it... but i just searched for it and i couldnt find it. and you're right they probably would go to the macbooks

    sigh, only to add more confusion and trouble -_-

    I did a semester abroad, and 2 out of 4 laptops of people I lived with broke. Not that that really had anything to do with it, although I think one may have fried because of the voltage difference. But I was going to buy a laptop before I left, and I'm extremely happy that I waited. That's just my experience. Also, I thought I wanted to wait for an ultraportable, but who knows when it will come, and from what people have been speculating, I think they'll be mad overpriced if/when they do come out.

    so you waited? why were you happy you did?

    new question: what do you guys think the likelihood of a price drop or speed bump in the mbp's are before september?

    Nope. Too early for september.

    You will be buying at the end of the cycle if you buy then though.
