    There won't really be any suggestions until you give information on what you will be planning to use the computer for (graphics design, simple internet browsing/music, etc.). Also determine if portability will be a factor. New updates are speculated for late September.

    We are expecting updates in the Macbook, Macbook Pro, and possibly the Macbook Air.
    These updates are more than likely to occur in September, the same time they are going to update their iPods.

    What kind of user are you?
    How big is your hard drive?
    How much of it is filled?
    What kind of computer and/or labtop do you have now?
    How much RAM do you have?
    Do you have a labtop that you often take with you many places?

    Cute misspell =)

    Another question is how much money you have to spend on a computer in the first place.

    Im thinking of buying a new car. Which one should I get? :)

    If you explain your normal uses or particular goals, folks can help steer you in the right direction. For example, do you use desktops or laptops? Do you do normal stuff like email, web browsing, personal finance? Or do you need a faster computer for hobbies like video and photography?

    Strongly recommended that you wait! If new notebooks arrive..... they might be at a lower price point!

    wait if you can. Otherwise get a MacBook. You don't know when you'll need the portability.
