Yes, I realize there are probably a lot of threads like this. And I'm sorry for adding another, but I'd like responses tailored to my specific situation. I currently have a 13" base MBP. It handles everything I need it to and works awesome. But recently, I've been using my cousins 15" MBP and I love the screen! The extra 2" really makes a difference, and since I'd rather not upgrade every year - (which I'd be doing if I sold my 13" MBP) I'd rather be stuck with a 15" screen than a 13" one for the next two or three years. My decision really comes down to refurbished current gen or waiting for the next gen. I can probably hold out just fine for the next few months, but on the other hand I don't do much gaming - besides a few paradox and strategy games. I'll never be running the latest action games on my computer since I have consoles for that. I do plan to dive deeper into photoshop in the future, but I won't ever be doing company level graphics - simply as a means to help with some groups I'm involved with. Knowing all this, should I wait for the next generation or just buy a refurbished MBP right now? The 13" is fine for right now, so is the next upgrade going to be worth the wait? Either way, should I go for the lower tier - which would probably handle my current affairs fine, or try and future proof (knowing I will keep this computer for a few years) and aim a little higher since while 'future proofing' may be debatable...I may get more into gaming (never huge) or graphics editing. Last but not least, I've had a fleeting interest in a reufbrished 17" MBP. Totally unsuitable for the average customer, or not? I had a 17" PC when I was younger - like thirteen, and I never found it to big. But then again, I didn't take my computer too many places either. Really sorry about my rambling! I know no one can make the descision for me, but your opinions DO help! P.S. I might add, I don't want people thinking ALL I do is some light web browsing / E-Mail / Facebook. While the 13" is okay RIGHT NOW, I am getting more and more involved in graphics design and I do game some with bootcamp, - and sometimes the 13" lags. So no, I'm not going way over my head IMO.
