I want a 13 inch macbook pro. Simple enough, however,i think i want to wait for the next product cycle. My reasons:



1. Core 2 duo is aged...



2. HDMI out?



Thats it. it really is getting old, but im also getting a little figity about getting a macbook, i want one so bad!! Help alleviate my pain, do i buy now, or wait for goods?



Whats coming, when is it coming? Thanks!

    They were just updated, so you are probably looking at 6 months for a refresh.

    Admittedly I don't know very much about computers and yet I want to buy a macbook pro.



    I'm considering the two 13 inch models, but I was wondering if someone could explain how much of a difference it is between a 250GB serial ATA hard drive and a 320GB drive.



    Is the difference worth the extra 200 bones?



    much appreciated

    No it's not worth the difference. You get a 10% faster CPU and you get the 320GB hard drive as an option for $50 on the lower model. Paying $200 for that upgrade isn't worth it at all. Just get the lower one and if you need the bigger drive, spend $50 more.



    250GB should be enough for most things but add up your current media collections and files and weigh up whether you want Windows/Bootcamp too.
