I buy a new computer every year or two and a new mobile phone every two years. I've never really felt like I was missing out on anything. I think it is really just the niche enthusiasts that suffer from this condition.
Yes you do have the latest and the greatest - my two cMBPs are the newest cMBPs out aren't they?I just got the base cMBP. So by your definition, even buying a new machine, I do not have the latest and greatest.
I'm more than fine with it. I had to get a new one as the misses was monopolizing my 2.53Ghz C2D MBP. We both could be happy with our current setups now for a many years to come.
I think your real question is, how many here had a iPad3 and pitched a fit when the 4 came out? Or how many people would have pitched in that situation?
rocking a 13'' mbp from 2009 and still love it. recently installed a samsung 840 ssd and moved the hdd to the optibay. already maxed out the ram in 2010 (8 gigs).
it does everything I want it to for me (work-related, I'm a graphics designer , and private)
so no hard feelings at all. hope to get another 2 years out of it
