I understand not wanting to spend your money on "old technology" when new ones are just around the corner, but if all you do is use iTunes, surf the web, etc what difference does it make? Why not wait until the current gens drop in price? For people who are hardcore video encoders and editors and such, I understand. Same with videogames, it helps to have edge, but Macs aren't really gaming machines. So I beg the question, why? I just got my 2.66 c2d 15" replacement machine today and i love it. i don't think i could ask for a faster machine, even though that will be trumped soon enough it seems. I almost held off and waited until the new ones came out possibly tomorrow, but I've been playing the waiting game for too long and just need a fully functional and stable machine at school at this point. Your thoughts?
