    With MacWorld coming up, what's the possibility of an update to the Black MacBook? I know the 2.2ghz c2d just came out in mid-November, but it's Apple... :noes:

    Has anyone heard of any possible updates?
    By how much is the price of a predecessor affected when a new update comes out?

    Only douchebags wait. You could theoretically wait forever. There will always be something better coming out. How much greater can the Macbook get? Maybe a slightly faster processor? OK great. Its not like its going to be a revolutionary new machine.

    Why would you buy now when you could just wait a week and get something better for the same money?

    do they normally ditch their old new (not refurb) stock for cheap when an upgraded product comes out or do they just phase the new product in once the old ones run out?

    They probably won't get an update at MacWorld. Mac Rumours says buy now, they're not even mid cycle yet. But as it's MacWorld and only a week away I'd definately wait just incase.

    Oh and definately wait if you want a MacBook Pro, its due for an update.
