I start school in the middle of august and have set aside 3000 for a new 15in mbp. I will most definetly feel like crap if i buy a new mbp at the beginning of august and a new one is released in September or October. I have a Macbook at my disposal. 2gig 2gb ram, like from 2 years ago, good working condition thou. Has a nice WD hdd in it after apple one failed. My college requires students to have a laptop. Spec requirement's below.
