based on the mac rumors buyer's guide, i shouldn't buy a macbook now since i don't really need it. but i'd like to know how long i should assume that i'll be waiting for the next update... it seems the macbook is usually updated around every 6 months, except for a few times when it wasn't updated for around 9 months. so assuming that this update will also take 9 months, i'll expect to wait until July (it's last update in October to July = 9 months) what do you think? is there any further evidence about when the macbook will be refreshed? is intel releasing a processor at some point that could reflect a new macbook? what about snow leopard? would apple release a new computer with the release of the new OS? any other thoughts?
