So... I need a new laptop. I've been running a 2007 Santa Rosa Macbook Pro since they were released and I just don't think waiting any longer is going to make much of a difference for me...but STILL! Right now I mainly use it as a media server, and I'm going to continue to do so until it either dies or I end up with a better solution. My plan was to do the 13" base MBP with education discount for $999, which Apple throws in a $100 gift card which basically brings it down to $899 in my eyes.. And I get 5% cash back thru my Discover card which reduces the cost even more. I ordered a OWC storage doubler for the optical drive... so I'm going to do a 120gb SSD and move the 500gb internal drive over to the optical slot. I'm also upgrading the RAM to 8gb thru crucial. I feel like this is the smartest, most cost-effective choice at the moment given that we probably have a few more months before another refresh, and when that does happen they'll still be pretty damn expensive for a while. I'm basically looking for some feedback on this choice. I've got 15 days to return it for a full refund by 08/01 which is when it comes. Do you guys think I'm getting a good value by doing this now or are these haswell processors and wi-fi ac worth waiting a few more months for... along with paying the super premium for the latest and greatest? ***Edit: Sorry I created a new thread for this. I posted in the sticky one. Not sure if I can delete posts on here.
