Hi guys, New onto the MacRumors forums, loving it though. Just had a complicated question: I'm going to get a new MacBook for my birthday next year, which is on March 29. I have a friend who works at Apple, and he said that Macs should only be bought when they're extremely new, they should be bought when they're just around 15-20 days old at maximum, because Intel refreshes their processors and soon Apple follows by refreshing their notebook lineup with the new Intel processors. He also said MacBooks/other Apple notebooks are updated approximately in every 190-200 days. My birthday is just about 100 days away (99 days to be exact). I have checked the buyer's guide, and my friend was right, the average days for an update is 195 days for a MacBook. It's already 66 days since the MacBook has been released. 195-66 = 129. Approx. 129 days until the next MacBook update. My birthday is in 99 days. 129-99 = exactly 30 days. This means the newly REFRESHED MacBook will be around 30 days old when it's my birthday next year in March. Should I get it then, when it's 30 days old? Or wait for ANOTHER refresh after that? I can get the notebook whenever I want, it doesn't have to be in March. Thanks.
