if you need it know then get it but if you can wait you could save because u would not need to buy tiger but if you need it buy now

is tiger the only reason to buy later? Do you think the prices will drop again in the summer?

Buy it now. Prices might drop but I seriously doubt it, and a new generation of PBs is not likely any time soon.

The only reason to wait would be to have Tiger preinstalled if that is important to you. If you are not sure if Tiger should be important to you then it is not.

If you want to wait till next year then maybe something will change or prices drop, but not in the 4-5 month range.

If you really need to buy it now, go on. But i would wait till around x-mas, cause u know the prices are gonna be dropping. Im gonna wait till around then, or if i can find a good deal. Last time around that part of the year, you could save between 300-500 bucks in savings.
