    I would wait...

    ...until Aug-Sept. or toward the end of the Back to school Promo. This gives :apple: the time they need to pull off a nominal speed bump. The total redesign is for MW2009SF... :apple:

    Why wait? I bought mine on leap day and have used it everyday since. Glad I didn't wait.

    Is there anywhere one could buy a MBP now and return to get an update if it appears in July or August? Would Fry's Electronics or Best Buy allow a return after a couple months? I wish Costco was selling Macs in a more dedicated manner - they seem to appear locally here and there but not longterm (I think they get deals from local vendors but not with Apple directly).

    Haha. No, sorry but you can only return/exchange your mac in just 14 days. After that, you have a warranty on it for a year unless you buy applecare where you would have three. No returns after 14 days. A month or two is just too long to return it dude. This is a laptop.

    why waste your money if you're planning to buy the next revision anyway?

    No I think you just add it to cart and they either do an instant rebate or a mail-in.

    No one would do that or they wouldn't make money; for regular electronics like Costco it's 90 days, but for computers it's 30 days.

    Best Buy is 14 days.

    Never. Until it matches lenovos features and price points.

    Well, I've just ordered a refurbished 2.5GHz 15 inch MBP.

    I'm a terrible sufferer of "buyers remorse", so I'm very pleased that I waited for WWDC... at least now I can enjoy my new toy for what it is - an amazing piece of technology! I'm not willing to wait any longer, and certainly won't be waiting for the "possible" Montevina - which may turn out to be Nehalem in early 09.

    The wait is killing me already :)

    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful community here on Macrumors and for the helpful threads and advice. Cheers.

    Sorry I'm new here. I dont understand... WWDC is from June 9-13, right? Today is only the 10th--so we have 3 more days until we know for sure it wasn't announced at WWDC? Or is the first /opening day the only day they are allowed to announce the new MBP on?:confused:

    Just buy one. It is a phenominal machine. I think you are going to be satisfied whether you wait or not. And buying it and then exchanging it is just pointless.

    Does anyone seriously believe that there'll be MBP revisions in August?

    No, they'll be in July.

    There is no "allowed", it's just not going to happen at WWDC.
