I'm headed to college this fall and plan to major in ComSci. Given the programming focus, I've been advised by those at my college to get a Unix laptop, and I'd love to finally jump ship to the Mac with this opportunity. With the filing of the new model numbers today, I can expect new MacBooks inbound. I am contemplating either jumping to the 2019 15" Pro, which I can get at a substantial discount after tax refund and student discount abroad, or "refreshing" my current laptop, an Asus Ultrabook, with a new battery and installing Linux for the first programming class, and holding out til whenever these new MacBooks are released. I'm thinking I'd like to wait for the 16 inch, but even then wouldn't it make sense to wait for new Airs and 12" MacBooks to see what they have to offer? Thoughts?
