I've had a white macbook since fall of 2007. It is still great but I've got an itch for a new MBP. So mine right now is running tiger, has 1gb ram, 160gb hard drive, and 2.0ghz processor. As long as I have a good internet connection it runs super fast. But if airport is going in and out all of my applications lag, not just web browsers. If it was only me using my computer I could get by just fine with it for another couple of years probably. But it just so happens to be the only computer in my house newer than 1994 (and the only one that will go online), other than an Acer laptop which takes 20min to startup and gets viruses super easy. So my parents use my laptop as well. Which gets annoying. My mother will be going back to school in the fall and needs a computer. So really my question is: Is the current version of the 13"MBP worth buying, or should I wait until next year? Fall I will be starting my senior year of college and then I am off to graduate school (for psychology so lots of papers) the next year. Also should I buy iWork or use microsoft office? Which my friend has a copy of. Yea I know lots of rambling but I am torn about waiting or buying now. I have student loan money just sitting in my bank account begging me to spend it on a MBP.
