    Hello i'm 14 and am saving up for a Macbook Pro 15". I'm getting payed $200 a month for a local job. Should i buy the Macbook Pro when i get $1600 on MacMall or should i wait till i get a extra $200 just encase i need it.

    Thanks

    I'm not really sure why you'd need the extra $200.

    BTW, I'd check out the Apple refurb store. You can get some great deals there.

    Since you're getting paid enough to buy now why would you wait?

    Do the one's in the refurb store have the BIG track pad because i absolutely love that.

    Please forgive me for misspelling paid.

    Look for your self. I always get either envious or frustrated when I go there. As long as it has the ugly black bezel, it has the multi-touch trackpad.

    You could always just opt for the anti-glare option. :p

    That's a lot a computer for a 14 year old. The 13 inch doesn't do it for you? you could save a lot of money by going that route

    But then it just looks even more stupid. Only the classic MBP looks good in anti-glare guise.

    Why?

    save more or buy now?

    Dude! I'm twice your age & I own the 13" macbook pro. Don't let any one fool you this little computer packs a powerful punch. I have been using it now everyday and cannot be with out it. Because of it's size. It's what you would get If you rolled a Ipod touch & a net computer/ apple tablet into one.

    If you can do with a 13" screen, you'll save a lot of money towards a nice solid state drive & 4GB of memory & you'll be right up there with the best of em. Most of all you can save some of your money.

    Good luck with your purchase:)
