Hey everyone...my first thread on macrumours. I've been reading about how Apple MIGHT have a new update this september / october. Up until two weeks ago, i had been using a Sony Vaio TX630P. Great laptop, 3 lbs, 11 in. screen. It died due to a motherboard failure or something. Sony wants $700 + shipping and stuff for the repair and I'm not sure its worth spendin that much for a laptop i got in december of my freshman year of highschool (I'm entering my senior year now). My question, like most of the others on this forum, is should I take advantage of the Student Discount and get one of the MBs or should I wait till September 15th? How sure is everyone that there will be an update of something on September 15th? I would have no problem waiting for that date as my senior year actually starts on that day. If the update isnt until mid or late October, then thats a problem. How major are these updates anyways? Are they minor or so major that its worth the wait? I really wanna have a laptop ready by the start of classes but i wouldnt mind waiting for teh Sept. 15 update, if that is the date? Thanks in advance for suggestions. PS...the sony vaio initially cost $2400 and I bought an extedned warranty (expired) for another $300 and if i do the service its another $700 and another warranty for 300 to ensure i dont pay another 700....$1300...worth it?
