Looking for some MacRumors thoughts on this. Have a certain amount of money available to me through my position which I could put towards a new Retina MBP or something else. I am currently using a ~2009 era 15" MBP. Thing is, the device would have to be purchased within the next 1-2 weeks. My concern is that there is likely an upcoming refresh to the Retina MBP, seeing as how by the Buyer's Guide, we're at 206 days since refresh as of today (12/10), with average time elapsed since a refresh being 214 days as of today. Device is used for a variety of relatively lightweight things. Occasional (rare) gaming, nothing strenuous, though I wish to keep the horsepower just in case. Will be used for streaming to an Apple TV. As this is my primary machine, I prefer a larger screen as far as laptops go, and as a techie, top shelf is required. All that being said: am I really looking at missing a refresh because I "have" to purchase the device within the coming week or two? While obviously I care, should I care?
