    Hey,

    Next year I am going to university and I need a laptop/notebook (what's difference PS I don't care what the difference is). I have seen the new Macbooks and I think I want the new Macbook white. I'd rather have the other Macbook but it's just too expensive.
    I don't NEED the Macbook now, I still have got 8 months of high school, but my birthday is coming soon and I could just ask money from everybody to buy the Macbook.
    But on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbook) I saw that there is an update of the Macbook every 6 months or so.
    So, now my question: Is it a big difference if I buy THIS Macbook or the generation that still has to come?
    I of course know that you don't know what is in the new Macbook, but if you look at the changes in Macbooks the past few years, what would you say?

    I am not a gamer, I only use my PC for downloading, MSN, Word and internet.

    Thanks

    I'll sell you mine (Mint condition Black High End) for $650.

    I don't need it anymore and I am trying to sell anything I don't need for some college money.

    Contact me via PM if you're interested

    I would get it later maybe wait a month because they may discover flaws and fix those, so just give it time so when you buy it there won't be any potential flaws.

    What do you mean by flaws? And does this happen often with Apple that they release something with flaws?

    I would wait, although it's not very likely that they update them between now and then, they might.

    Hey,

    I think I am going to wait because next year the new OS will be released; Mac OS X Snow Leopard. And there will be Multi Core Macs, although I don't know if this also counts for the MacBooks.
    When I will go to the university I want to have the newest one. And I probably will have more money then.
    Thanks
