So I was holding out for the Back to School promo, now that that's only a $100 iTunes giftcard rather than $199 off an iPod touch or iPad I don't know if I should just get my new 15" MBP or wait until the new case design comes. Even though the buyers guide says mid product cycle with about another 100 days to go, the new MBPs might not come til the beginning of 2012 since the last two refreshes took longer than the historic average. I've waited over a year since my Powerbook G4 failed because I wanted Thunderbolt, but is it worth waiting for the next refresh of MBP since it'll be a new case design and Ivy Bridge? I wish they had the keyboard like I have on my Powerbook, thats not guaranteed to change but there's a chance. I would also hope the SSD options either come down in price, or they offer a combo a la the iMac setup with a smaller SSD to hold the OS etc on and then a larger HDD with at least standard 7200 rpm why not a 10k rpm.
