    I have a 2007 macbook, and looking to upgrade sometime soon

    I know macrumors says to upgrade now (retina at least)but I'd like to read your guy's input

    I really just need it for school/surf the web, and plan on keeping it for a long while

    Is there going to be a huge significance when they come out with the broadwell chip?

    Nah
    Get it now
    There would be barely a difference
    And any computer around now is good for your uses
    I have Mid-2009 MacBook Pro, it just has 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and it is fine today for what I do. For your uses a Mac or even any computer would last a long time.
    If you want to wait then you could also want to wait for the next one after that, and you'd never get anything.

    For that usage.....

    I would go for the late 2013 version as a refurb and save a load of cash.

    I agree. Go for the 2013 refurbs. Almost identical to the 2014 version and you get to save a lot of cash.

    From reading on here, their is a chance of a fairly significant boost in the dedicated GPU, possible. But then that's if Apple still uses one and if you want a 15" laptop?

    I agree with the others, get a 2013 refurb. It will last you for many years.
