    I need a laptop for school. I originally needed one last August, but decided to wait until Macworld 2008 to see if they introduced a new laptop. The Macbook Air sucks, and I'm pretty set on a Macbook. But I don't know if I should get one now or wait another 3 months to see if they come out with a newer version. I really need a laptop now, but will be extremely pissed if they come out with a newer one in a few months.

    What should I do? :hs:

    I bought a black c2d macbook before the most recent update.

    If you keep putting it off, you'll never get a machine. Just get one now, and be happy with it. I got mine right before the C2D machines came out, but it's still a kick ass computer

    I am waiting for the 12 inch MacBook Pro to come out. I have a first gen MacBook and the OS works fine, but the build sucks. Case falling apart, stuck trackpad key etc.

    What is wrong with the MacBook Air?

    Just wait a few more months till the updates to the MacBooks come out.

    People say "go for it, who cares" but why not wait a coupe months and get something better for the same money?

    If you can wait, wait just a little longer.

    The MacBook Air doesn't suck. Sounds more like you don't have enough money. :mamoru:

    Anyways, congrats on the black MB
