Thats a good idea. My birthday is mid-october and im not in a rush to get it. My cousin said he knows someone who works for apple so maybe he can find out when the version comes out.. Im just concerned with the fact in 1 year from now, will this still be a good laptop to have.Your right about the pro, i dont need that. I guess i will have to go to apple and try the macbook and see if i feel comfortable with it.
