    If you can wait then do so, if you cannot then buy it. The Haswell chipset is due out in June so any MBPs having that chipset probably won't appear until August.

    The 15" will probably not be much of an upgrade this time around. ~10% better CPU speeds and a slightly bumped graphics chip will probably be about the only changes. Maybe some changes to pricing and SSD size options.

    The changes for the 13" model may be a lot more significant because of the improved integrated graphics in the next generation of Intel chips, but the 15" already has a dedicated NVidia graphics chip so that won't matter so much.

    This is the single best reason to wait.

    Apple's pretty good about silently including a larger capacity HDD or SSD and more memory for about the same price as the prior model.

    It's a great benefit.

    I'd recommend waiting if possible.

    Hopefully some issues will be fixed, some slightly faster performance, and maybe price changes.
