    Changes for Leopard
    Hi, I'm planning on replacing my current laptop with a new Mac Book Pro, are there going to be any changes to the laptop itself that would make it worth waiting until October to buy one instead of just getting one now and upgrading to leopard?

    Apple is very secretive about most new product releases. There is no publicly available schedule or normal timetable for new machines. Rest assured that whatever machine you buy now will be more than sufficient for running Leopard as Apple's policy has been to support older machines, sometimes going back several generations. My advice would be that if you need a new machine now, just buy it.
    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!

    Yes, but why wait 4 months before buying a Mac you want Now? Is it to save $130? how hard would it be to generate that much money in four months?

    My friend was actually waiting till june to buy his mac, because of leopard, but now that it has been pushed back, he is dissapointed. Why base your purchase on dates you are not sure of.

    I say get the Mac now, and upghrade to Leopard when it comes out. you wont regret it.
