    As thegoldenmackid would say: search and you shall find.

    New MacBook Pros (updated ones) are expected in the next two months, with a possible new CPU called Arrandale (there is a big fat thread in this sub-forum) in it.

    If you can wait this long, wait.

    If we sound a little bit obnoxious and condescending it may be due to the fact that the question you asked is asked two to five times a day on this forum, even in this sub forum.

    In the OP's defense, if you aren't familiar with the names, you may not know - but this is the sixth time I've seen this question today.

    That's what I thought too, after I took the screenshot and saw no obvious "shall I wait or shall I buy" thread and only the name Arrandale pop up, which may mean nothing to "outsiders"*.

    *People who don't frequent places for the acquisition of knowledge about the latest CPU technology.

    My two searches via mroogle produced results using basic search terms.

    And now a seventh time as it seems.

    You have your answer already stored I way as I have seen.

    I get the feeling, that the closer the update is, the more same threads will appear on a daily basis.

    Now we just have to figure out, what the maximum number of daily threads is on the day before Apple releases the updates, so we could deduce a better estimate to when and put a big bumper sticker on every [​IMG] button.

    It will be over soon. For our sakes.

    Have a good night.
