Back in February, I bought my first Mac, a Macbook Pro. I had been following a lot of Apple rumor sites for months, read the forums, and knew that it would be updated soon. So when it was updated, I got it.
Like I said, it was my first Mac. I had been meaning to get one for a while but every time I thought about it, a newer model was meant to be released soon and I withheld my purchase. This time (February) I figured if I didn’t take the plunge, then in my effort to always get the latest model I would never get one. Technology will always be updated and one can only have the latest and greatest for just a short amount of time and Apple updates their hardware every 9-12 months. Only with acceptance can I buy a Macbook Pro.
So after I bought the Pro I stopped going on the forums, stopped researching the next release date. I didn’t want to be the inevitable forum poster that was upset because Apple was releasing a newer version again (“But I just bought one *whine* “). I didn’t want to regret my purchase at all.
The announcement came today: Apple updated the Macbook, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Air. Therefore, my Macbook Pro is no longer the newest one.
And I’m ok with that.
