I know the buyer's guide on here recommends waiting on a MBP unless you really need it due to a refresh expected in Q1 2010...however, based on today's news on Apple potentially skipping Arrandale, I'm wondering what the consensus is now. I've been eyeing my first Mac...the 13" MacBook Pro for general use and photo editing in Photoshop CS3 or CS4. I fully realize many oppose the 13" and/or the glossy screen for photo editing, but that's what my price point provides and I do it more for a hobby (and for a little additional money on the side, but I'm certainly no pro). I'll deal with what I can get out of the 13" screen and the glossy. I was all set to wait until Jan/Feb to see what the new year brought, but based on today's rumors...I'm beginning to wonder if I should just pull the trigger on a purchase sooner rather than later. Also...would any upgrade to the MBP provide a significant boost for a general user and Photoshop user like myself? Any other insight?
