In theory this applies to almost any apple product (particularly the iPhone) , but in spite of the rumors I just wanted to add a little humor. Note i'm not saying that any of these are not legitimate reasons. Its just funny to see some of these come up from time to time when the revision rumors start swirilin. 1) Oh it's a new revision at least you got the one with all the bugs out. 2) This one is fine the new one probably won't even be that much better 3) You got a fine machine I got the same one so we're buddies and we both made the right decision 4) That's ok the one that comes in 2 revisions will be the one that will REALLY be awesome. It just so happens to be the same one that I am going to pick up, so in reality, we're smarter. This next one will be crap. 5) I heard there was gonna be a price increase on the new ones, so I got this model instead. 6) I heard there was gonna be a price drop on the new ones, because they will have less comparable features. 7) The next macbook will have less features so mine is actually a collectors item (i'm looking at you, 2008 Unibody macbook buyers) 8) I heard it's going to come with mountain lion, but I want to be able to run lion and mountain lion, so I got this instead. 9) It was a gift. 10 ) I'm a hipster so I think the new ones will be too mainstream. 11) #YOLO 12) The new ones are always out of stock for a while; didn't feel like waiting. 13) Based on the rumors i'm sure the resale value will be higher for my MBP than the new one. 14) Retina? What a gimmick. 15) I've never even seen a USB 3 device before. 16) Yeah but why would I want two thunderbolt ports?
