    Hey guys,
    I'm looking at buying a new Macbook but I was wondering, will the new 'nehalem' processors being realeased make my laptop obsolete faster?/ should I wait for the next update?

    From everything I've seen and read Nehalem is a monster and will be a huge step up from the current architecture. With that said Nehalem isn't supposed to be released until Q3-Q4 2009. So you're going to be waiting for a long time. :D

    oh cheers. I might buy now then. I really need a new computer for uni, so it's probably worth the risk. I can always update again in a couple of years. Thanks for your help!!!
