I am in the market for two MBP 13" notebooks and I'm completely torn on buying now or waiting for the next refresh. I know the refresh will be a step forward over the aged hardware in the current crop, but two things have me concerned. 1. That all of the new MBPs will have no optical drive. 2. That the new MBPs will move to SSDs with lower capacity. I know a lot of folks are OK without an optical drive but I need and use mine heavily. SSD is nice but I'd rather have the extra capacity and lower cost of a traditional HDD. My current thought is to wait until the new models are unveiled and then if they don't suit me try to scramble and buy new-old-stock of the current model someplace. I've been waiting for this refresh but as it nears I can't help but think it's going to be less of what I actually need.
