    Upgraded Macbook Pros are supposedly being shipped in September. If I don't like the upgrades, will I still be able to buy the MBPs that are currently available?
    Will they be cheaper? Will I be able to upgrade them through the store? (Higher RPM in Hard Drive and maybe more RAM)

    Thanks in advance.

    The older models will be on the Apple refurbished store. If you go to a retail store they might offer the older models that are still in stock at a discount.

    Refurb or eBay will be the only way to get current models after the new ones ship.

    Look at the last-revision Macs in the refurb store now. Since Apple hasn't changed base prices since the introduction of the MacBook Pro, they'll give you a great idea of what to expect price-wise.

    A few days after the release of a new MBP's I bought the previous model. It was about 25% cheaper. The saved money I used for purchase of RAM and router. I think that it was a good move.

    I regularly and strongly recommend a visit to the refurb section before purchasing. If you find a machine with the specs you like in the refurb store there is NO REASON to spend more elsewhere. Refurbs are in superior shape and carry a full warranty.

    Don't forget Amazon either, they generally have some sizable discounts on new last-generation Macbooks Pros. Seems like they're all out out, but worth a shot when the new ones are released.

    Also remember when the new ones come out, the old stock is repackaged as refurbished.
