I've always been the anti-Apple guy, without any good reason. I picked up an iPhone 3GS, and it's been downhill since then. I grabbed an iPad 2 when they came out, and now I'm thinking of getting a new laptop. I don't really "need" one, I just want one. I currently use a 17" Acer media laptop that pretty much lies dormant unless I Splash Top to it or need to edit videos. I went to the Apple store and looked at the laptops. Based on my editing, even though I don't do it much, I think a MacBook Pro would be the best bet. I really wouldn't use it much, since my iPad meets my general needs, so I don't have to get it now. My Acer is still running, too, it's just reaching the end of it's live. It has the PC slowdown that seems to hit all my PCs around the 2 year mark. I guess my question is do they normally come out with new models soon? If it isn't until next year, I might as well just get one now.
