I made a post in the past asking for advice on which laptop I should get as I was pretty torn between the Thinkpad and the MBP. Well, I still haven’t decided on either because the deals were really lame throughout the holiday season (Thinkpads were marked up then marked down to make it seem like a good deal, and Apple’s sale was… wow -_-;). Anyway… currently I have the choice of purchasing a 13″ Macbook Pro (2.53 GHz, 4GB RAM,250 GB HDD) for roughly $1250 but only half of that is coming out of my own pocket. I’m VERY tempted to jump on the deal… but new Intel CPUs are right around the corner. I’ve been smacking myself with these questions for the past few days and it’ll soon drive me nuts:
1. DO I REALLY GIVE A DAMN!?… about the new CPUs that is. Do I care if it’s more powerful and efficient when THE MOST I use it for is typing essays, surfing and possibly youtube every blue moon? I think deep inside me… the answer is probably no.
2. Will I find a cheaper deal than $1250 for this MBP (retails $1350-1399 with student discount)?
3. Will there be other improvements/fixes that I actually might care about in the new MBP?
4. I hate buying stuff at the end of its cycle… but maybe I can just buy it and never look at any apple news…
Yea this post is tl;dr but I just need to throw out my thoughts out before I go nuts. I really need a laptop too… seeing how I’m stuck at school from morning to night and two of my classes require doing and submitting work online (computer science).
Don’t mind this post if it sounds out of nowhere ^^;. Blogging in a computer lab on my break… what a great time to pass the time :D. I’ll catch up on comments and related stuff when I get home at night…
Time for class!
