    Should I go ahead and get one now or wait for the new ones that are supposed to be coming out in a month? Will there be a difference in price? i.e. - will the new ones have better features for the same price or be more expensive since they are the new models?

    Thanks :wavey:

    Just buy it now. Waiting for something that may not come till Jan/Feb, or as soon as September.

    If you NEED a laptop now, or anytime soon, you might as well buy one. The new MacBooks may come out with tons of problems, while the current ones seem to be pretty solid (as far as I know). The waiting game sometimes won't work out in your favour.

    I loved my macbook when I bought it. At the time, I needed the bigger screen so I sold it and got my Macbook Pro :o

    why do you say that?

    chances are it would be LATE September or at least after the 15th when the free ipod promo ends.

    if you are "thinking" of buying one, you obviously don't have any immediate need for a laptop so you might as well wait.
