Hello,

I'm new to these forums....I've finally decided to switch over to Mac OS from PC and am looking into buying a mac computer. After some research, I am under the impression that the MBP will likely undergo a redesign in 2012. So, I'm not sure if I should buy a mac now or wait until the new ones come out. At the same time, I want to switch over to a mac now as opposed to next year. any advice will be appreciated. thanks.
QUOTE Thanks

Hello and welcome to Mac-Forums.com. We're glad you've joined us.

This question actually comes up quite a bit, and as far as I'm concerned, the answer pretty much applies to any technology purchase:

Buy the machine you need when you need it. It will continue to fulfill those needs long after an updated model is released. If you're always waiting for the next big thing on the horizon, you'll be waiting forever.

Also, the MacBook Pro line was just recently refreshed with slight speed bumps in processors. So, it will likely be awhile before the next refresh.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
