I want a MBP and I should have the money by or before the end of March and I don't know if I should wait for them to launch OS X 10.5... You any of you think its just going to be the OS that will change or some of the other specs too...? I don't know if I should buy it in March and then just upgrade to OS X 10.5 later or wait until they launch OS X 10.5

answer these two questions and you'll know:
1. Do you need a new computer?
2. Can your afford said new computer?

When you can answer both with a yes, then you should buy your new computer.

Waiting would be a good idea if it is a finacial issue and depending on your current situation and needs.

I work at a large electronics retail store and the "close-out" date specified in our system on the current MB Pro is 4/30. New models are usually available around this time, if not earlier. That would give the current model a six month life span, sounds about right for them to upgrade the hardware along with Leopard. I plan on waiting until then myself. I would only get it now if you really need it.
