    I'm looking to get a Macbook Pro before August 20th, I was wondering when apple usually releases their new models. I would hate to spend that money and have something better come out for the same price.

    basically:
    right after the WWDC - which is in June
    right before the school shopping season
    right after Macworld in January

    sounds like you're buying at the right time. there will always be something better rumored though. you'll drive yourself crazy if you keep waiting around for the next big thing.

    :werd: Shortly after I bought my MacBook, C2D came out for the MacBook but I have no regrets with my CD MacBook. You can't always have everything...

    oh no i completely agree. but if it is that close to release, i'd imagine a careful ear would have heard about it or lolzilla would have posted it here. i'm just saying don't hold off on buying like a C2D MBP because some idiot said there may or may not be a quad core MBP sometime in the next 5 years.

    I'm definitely getting a macbook pro by August before I go back to class. I kind of want it now but I guess I should wait until atleast June to see if they're releasing anything.

    Wait until June 16th.

    WWDC is the 11th - 15th.

    I'm in the exact same spot as you, getting a MBP for college.

    If they release an updated version and I LIKE the updates, I'm going to buy it. If they release an updated version and I don't like the updates, I'm going to buy the old version for cheaper...and if they don't do anything I"ll buy it anyway. :rofl:

    just wait till they announce whatever is new at wwdc, but you have to remember that announcements are sometimes just announcements, they don't always ship that day, sometimes you have to wait months
