Not Gonna Wait

Hello all,

Long time lerker here! Anyway I'm not going to bother you all with the same tired question of "should I wait, or should I buy now". I did a lot of reading and research on this forum and decided to pull the trigger on a 13" Macbook!
2Ghz, 1G mem, superdrive white model. I need it before this fall due to education reasons, I am finishing my Nursing degree and need a laptop. I've had an interest in Macs for some time and patiently waited for Leopard to arrive, now I can't wait any more!:D

I need to learn how to use the darned thing before this fall. And if any major hardware upgrades come along, or I feel I cant live with out the "spotted o/s" I figure I can flip it on Ebay pretty easy.

I do have a question I read some posts stating to wait until this week end for word on new hardware? Whats this about? And can anyone recommend a good soft sleeve for the 13" model?
Thanks and I'll most likely have a tone of ??'s in the future!

I don't think I can wait either

Being in the same boat as you, I am thinking of just going for it instead of waiting...but I am curious about an upgrade...if and when Leopard makes it's appearance, how easy/cost effective is it to upgrade your 6 month old computer to the new system? Has anyone ever upgraded? Is it worth it?:confused:

I'm kinda in the same situation as you are. Though I need to upgrade from my 1 and half yr old laptop PC (being a total pain with it's problems), I was waiting for the Leopard to arrive this spring, but can't happen. So, after talking to a few of my friends, I'm just gonna go ahead and buy my MacBook right now, but at the same time I wanna wait for the new stuff to arrive... It's a tough call, so either wait 'til October for Leopard, with a possible introduction of a new Macs (with Leopard and/or Santa Rosa) or get my Mac now and if I really need the upgrade to Leopard do it then?? I can't decide which way to go...

It'll cost me $200-$400 to fix my laptop PC, so I don't think it's worth it... Can anyone suggest something to me, considering my situation??? Thanks :)

I just ordered a 17 MBP last Thursday, but it's not yet shipped... can't wait!!!!!
There won't be a hardware upgrade at least until Intel announces Santa Rosa, IMHO. So pull the trigger asap, let the Macbook serve u.

I've got a 13" Macbook and I bought myself a be.ez sleeve. I'm really happy with it, its made out of a resistant yet giving material so that it takes all the pressure of anything pushing against it without transfering it to the laptop. It's also got a lip on the inside protecting the laptop from zip scratches. I tried a couple of other sleeves before but this is the one I felt best protected it.
