    When should I buy a new Macbook Pro 13''?
    Hi there!

    I'm on the process of buying my first Mac, and I already targeted the Macbook Pro 13'' as my choice.
    But I'm not sure on when is the most appropriate time to do this.
    From what I've been reading a new set of Macbook Pro might be on it's way, and the integration of the new Intel processors (Core i5, i7, i9) it's a real possibility.
    If I buy my Macbook now, I'll only get a dual-core processor, and I don't want to miss the opportunity to get a new and better processor, if this implies waiting only a few months.
    Another important point in this decision is the Macbook Pro hard drive. While the Macbook Pro's have optional SSD solutions, a new set of Macbook Pro's might have SSD as a default option, and I don't want to miss on that as well.
    I would appreciate if you could give me your insights in this issue, especially if these new processors and hard drive technologies are really important points to make me delay my purchase.

    If you need it now, buy it. If not, wait until the new macbook pros come out. I would wait if I were you if you can because I'm guessing there will be some pretty major changes in the new macbook pro line.

    It doesn't sound like you need a computer.
    So why not wait until they come out with the Next Big Thing?
    But, don't buy that one either, because the next Next Big Thing is right around that corner.

    In other words, buy a new computer when you need it.
