First of all, I am sorry for creating another should I/shouldn't I thread I do most of my work as a student on a desktop, but the desktop is a 2004 Dell Dimension 4700/Intel Pentium 4 computer. Needless to say it's time for an upgrade. I do the usual email/internet/document use, but I also do amateur photography, which entails photoshop/aperture. I'm going for a laptop because that what will ultimately be more productive for me personally. About three months ago I stared comparing Mac/PC and decided to go with a Mac because it tends to be more durable and holds its value better, and I like the OS better. I did my homework and learned that a refresh or spec bump would be coming around, so I decided to hold off on pulling the trigger. Now that the MBpros are updated, it seems that a lot of people are saying to stick with the old C2D version, and then wait for the next one. So here's my question. Should I buy the latest base 13" (upgrade at home), or buy the late 2010 version cheap, and then upgrade to a current MBpro in a year or two?
