Hi everyone - I'm new to this forum, though a longtime reader of macrumors.com. So I'm having some terrible problems with my MBP (Core2Duo 2.33 2gb ram, late 2006). I think it's the logic board - It intermittently won't start up, and the firewire ports randomly don't work and/or crash the machine, and the lights on the keyboard are broken. I still have valid AppleCare, so I was going to send it to apple to get repaired... The only problem is that I can't really part with my laptop for even a few days. So, being a designer with a constant (and expensive) need for a very high-end machine, I was going to get a new MacBook Pro whenever the next generation came out, as this one is starting to suck my will to live now that so many projects are in HD. Here's the question: should I just buy a new MPB, send the old one off to be repaired, and try to sell it when it gets back all fixed up? Dumb idea? Also, what does everyone think about the performance jump in the next generation MPB - huge and worth waiting for, or no big deal? Are people generally happy with the newest MBPs? Thanks for your help.
