After much deliberation, I finally took the plunge yesterday, and bought myself a MacBook! The much anticipated announcement yesterday of the upgraded Core 2 Duo processors left me hanging, as only the Pro line were upgraded. It could be at least a month until the MacBook line are updated, and possibly even as far out as January. Not only that, but I want to buy a re-certified laptop to save the money, and I can't imagine any of the new models will be re-certified for many more months. So I decided to go ahead with the purchase now. Besides, if I want to upgrade down the road, I can always sell the one I have!
