AdminSecret's Laptop Buying Guide

10. Don’t Wait for What’s Coming (Except from Apple)

This wouldn’t be a tech buying guide if I didn’t have to update it in a couple weeks… But actually, laptops should be pretty stable for the next few months. Everyone’s back-to-school rush models are out already, and neither Intel nor AMD has any gigantic new platform announcements coming before the end of the year. So apart from Christmas sale prices, we won’t see much of anything new in the laptop world until next year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

Except, that is, from Apple. The company’s MacBook and MacBook Pro lines are overdue for an update, and that’s just what we should see from the company in the next few weeks. Speculation runs that Apple will announce updated MacBooks with aluminum cases and several other new features at an event on October 14th. That makes it a great time to wait if you’re looking to buy a Mac – in a couple weeks, you should be able to order one of the new models, or get an older one at a discount in Apple’s refurb store.
