    I need some advice. I just heard about the 2012 Macbook Pros getting a new design. Should I wait and buy the 2012 macbook pro or just get one now? Do you think it's worth the wait???
    Also, I know the 2011 models have basically just been released, but has there been any word on what the 2012 macbook pros might have?

    Here is a fool proof way to decide "wait or buy now"...

    If the computer you have is not doing what you need then buy a new computer.

    If your current computer is serving your needs then don't buy a new computer.

    Don't worry about what might be released later if the new computer fixes some problem, then fix the problem now. There are two issues here (1) buying something for nor reason is a waste of money (2) waiting can go on "forever" so don't fall into that trap. Buy what you need when you need it.

    Sound advice. If you need it, then do not wait for the redesigned refresh. :) But if you want it, then this is up to you, as forum members can offer their opinions and nothing more.
