I'm about to go off to college. I have a mid 09 MBP with the battery consumed, trackpad screwed, and RAM not up to par so I'm at the point where I'm looking for a new MBP. I also want to get an iPad for textbooks and ease of use of taking notes and reading books and such. I know the knew iPad Mini and MBP are coming out in a few months and my original plan was to wait for both. However, my current MBP only lasts 20 minutes off a charger and that can't happen in college during a lecture. So now I'm thinking maybe get one of them now, and wait for the other'a new version this fall. With the future upgrades in the near future for both the iPad Mini and MBP, is it worth waiting? Or which one is gonna have the most minimal jump in technology? I was thinking about getting the current MBP now, but I also remembered that the flash storage they introduced in the AIR lineup posted dramatic results in speed. Will it be that much of a difference?? I think you guys can understand my predicament, so what is the average public opinion on this situation? Thanks for the help, I appreciate it guys.
