    Well I am looking at buying a 15 inch rMBP with the minor update today but is it worth it too buy it now or should I wait? I am seeing a lot of people are waiting for haswell but what will that include? Just faster? Do you think they will update the rMBP again before the end of 2013? Thanks!

    I recommend you buy what you need, when you need it. It's a pointless effort to chase the "next update", since you don't know for certain what it will include or when it will be, and there will always be a "next update" coming, no matter when you buy.

    Thanks, do I need it now? no but it wouldnt hurt to have it a bit earlier. I am just curious if people think the next update will be a big one or not.

    There are quite a few existing threads already discussing this, such as this one:

    Nothing that will change your life or make you regret what you already have. Unless you're OCD about such things of course.

    And amazingly enough, I've skipped 4 iterations of my current machine and it didn't burt into flames the day each version was introduced. It even runs the same apps and OS :eek:
