You basically answered the question our self. You don't need it until August. If that is the case, then start looking in July. That should give you enough time to get in hand by August.

No, the only new thing coming (with hard evidence to substantiate it) is Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5), which will not be here until October. If you want time to get acclimated to it, and you've decided that the Mac is what you need, I'd say go for it.

you will probably begin to get worried after a few hours of using it because the operating system is going to do something extremely weird...like, not crash ;) there are no problems with the OS.

but there is a learning curve to the os, in which you have to un-learn some windows things and do them the mac way...it is nothing difficult and once used to these few small things you will love that they are so much easier than the other os you were using before ;)
