QUESTION?? 02-03-2012 06:44 AM

macbook dilemma
 
I am starting university in just over 3 weeks and need a notebook. After a bit of research I uncovered the rumour about the macbook pro "2012 redesign". Has anyone heard anything recently to confirm this?? Is it worth waiting or buying a '11 model? :\

You didn't really "uncover" anything special...there are always rumors of some new Macintosh model "just around the corner". If you took these rumors seriously...you would never end up buying anything!;)

By the way...the world is supposed to end in 2012...so this time next year this question won't seem very important! (this is a rumor as well)!;)

The bottom line is...if you need a computer now...get it. If you can wait...then wait!:)

FWIW, I do not expect a major redesign of the MacBook Pro this year. Apple (and consumers) seem to be super happy with the current design, so at best I think they will tweak it a bit in late spring.

ISTR that Intel has some new processors out that are Sandy Bridge not Ivy Bridge (or have I got that wrong way round?), ie incremental not revolutionary. This hints to me that the next revision is likely to be very minor.
