Even if the iMac was stupendously redesigned, I wouldn't be buying a Rev. A. Seriously.
But talking about Mac updates now, we're looking at a big flow on.
Mac Mini to Core2Duo ALREADY!
....opens the floodgates, end of March announcements made, all ship with Leopard.
....runs FAST with CS3, also announced end of March.
Patience, my pretties, for as this moon cycle completes, the next shall bring wonders beyond your dreams.
END OF MARCH! CLASS DISMISSED !!!
I always wait a month or so before ordering a major rev.. TYhat has proven to be sufficient.
But, this may not be major, just the usual bumps. Still, I would rather buy a bumped product than one that is on the way out.
Apple may include that which is optional, say the better video card. They may even offer a better one. The Cpu will surely be bumped. Bigger HD? What else?
Enough to wait on, when you don't really NEED it.
with the Mac Pro, though, I don't know. We're getting close to the second half with it possibly. Depending on Intel, It might pay for me to wait a bit longer. My dual 2 GHz G5 is still chugging along. Now that I've dropped pretty much all of my pro work, I don't really need that right now.
If Intel comes out with the 45 nm chips in the second half, that might be something to wait for, considering that it may be possible to upgrade the cpu's after a while. If one gets a machine now, that won't be possible, and the 65 nm generation is running its course, so siginificent upgrades will be out of the question.
45 nm will have a major impact.
