Is a terrible time to buy anything made by Apple at all.
Statistically, Apple refresh each of their product lines every year around the same month, therefore; the iPad event has been confirmed for March 2nd and we can expect a new iPhone around mid-end of June.
Which is a massive shame as I want an iPhone so much after suffering a Sony Ericsson Satio for a year and a half before FINALLY throwing it on the floor really hard in anger. Sadly, I will have to wait, as I would be a fool to purchase anything past the half way point in it's lifecycle..
Like in my last post I mentioned, the new Macs then, i believe they refresh the Mac line in September, are these newly released Macbooks full updates then? I mean, we will be expecting OS Lion in the Summer, and if that's as groundbreaking as it's supposed to be, then surely the hardware will be there to back it up??
