I'd like to preface this with THIS IS NOT A QUESTION ON WHETHER I SHOULD GET A PC OR MAC!!!
Now that this is out of the way...I currently have a 4 year old iMac (20", 1GB ram). It is doing its job with little show of age. It might chug here and there but for the most part it gets the job done.
But with the iPad release (I don't buy 1st gen Apple products) and the idea of getting a Netbook, I am considering getting a MacBook Pro. I'd like to think of it as the successor to my iMac. I only think MBP cause it is more hardy and with me starting to edit HD video (might get FinalCutPro), perhaps music editing, and my new project coming up requiring extensive PhotoShopping, seems like a decent idea.
I am just worried about buying a MBP and then getting a new one released a month later. Is there a standard Apple event in June? I could buy one now but will wait till April at least to pad the bank account a little more.
