    I don't really like to wait for something, because you think its coming this month then it doesn't come until 5 months later and you've wasted a lot of time...

    However I need a new computer and it's going to be a MacBook Pro. I waited for the January update, and now they say February. If I got one now, and a new one came out next month, that would suck.

    So what should I do?

    Search the forums and don't ever create new threads about this. That's what you do.

    I would wait, as an update definitely appears imminent.

    impotent indecision.

    The obvious answer is : If you need it now, get it now.

    Quite a number of threads have been posted on this. My advice, for what it's worth, is buy now if you need it, wait until the updates if you merely want it. Then, you can decide whether or not the updates meet your requirements; if they don't, I suggest you buy refurb. You will have the peace of mind of knowing that they have been rigorously tested by Apple and that they come with the standard Apple warranty.
    Cheers

    It sounds like OP's been reading about Peryn 8 months ago.
