I'm a college student desperately wanting to replace his aging 2007 MBP (with the 8600 GT graphics card, it's a ticking time bomb) but it seems so much more economical to wait 4 months. Here's why: 1) Lion - the next version of the Mac operating system appears to be a larger upgrade than Snow Leopard was over Leopard (hence keeping the "Leopard") in the name. It's likely that Apple would charge $100 or so to upgrade from Snow Leopard. The reference releases of Mac OS X remained $129 for 10.2 through 10.5. Therefore, buying the computer with Lion included would save a small bundle of money. 2) Free iPod touch worth $230. Is there anything incorrect here? I really want to buy the new MBP, but it seems like it would be more economical to wait.
