    It will be put into aluminum the day after you buy it. :D
    Seriously, just get it. Apple's not replacing their consumer line any time soon. And if they did, it's not as if all the iBooks and Macbooks out there would suddenly stop working...

    Last November, I was contemplating to wait for MacWorld before buying my MacBook. I wasn't in an urgent need to replace my old Dell laptop, but was in the market for a new one.

    What pushed me over the edge was the Santa Rosa update for the MacBooks. I'm sure glad that I bought it then. Since I got the MacBook, computing is a joy again, instead of a chore. :)

    So, I would say buy it as soon as you can. But since you're having exams soon, beware that a new Mac could be very distracting ;)

    I agree with everything that's been said so far. I just bought a new black MacBook. The MacBooks will NOT become aluminum (unless Apple moves the Pro's to a different type of metal - not likely).

    I have no regrets. If I had to guess, they *might* get touch-sensitive trackpads like the MacBook Air on the next revision, but I don't think that's really worth waiting for unless you can afford to wait or really need to have the latest tech.
