Is now a good time to buy a MacBook Pro?


The eternal question ...

Just yesterday an acquaintance asked me if it was a good time to buy a new MacBook Pro And after talking it over with him for a while, we came to the conclusion that today would not be the best time to get hold of one of these machines, always depending on the personal situation of each one, of course.

Another of the signs that advise us against buying a 15-inch MacBook Pro has just appeared in the form of shipping delays of this particular model. The case of 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina if it can be a purchase option to this day, as the Force Touch was recently added and this model may not be updated, but for the non-Retina MacBook Pro and 15-inch MacBook Pro, it is best to be cautious and wait.

Apple does not notify of changes or updates to a model despite the fact that hardware updates not so long ago they more or less followed a pattern settled down, just like the iPhone does to get an idea. Currently it is not the same and Apple releases updates on the fly improving some details without being a radical change in design or complete renovation of the model.


With the Mac Pro desktop it is the sameAfter what it cost to see its official launch, now would not be a good time to buy one since its launch in December 2013 may indicate that this year it is time for change or update. Be that as it may, what matters is knowing how to choose well when buying an Apple device and not be stupid when you see an update of your model just a month or two after you buy it.

If the need is pressing and you can't wait, my advice is to buy a new MacBook, a 13-inch MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air, which are the models that in principle will not undergo updates soon. Despite my words (which are by no means the absolute truth) we cannot trust much and if you can wait for WWDC 2015 that is just around the corner, better

Another detail that we got to in the talk was that if you wait, wait, wait, in the end you don't buy anything either, but you don't have to go crazy in these cases and that is why I wanted to share this post with you. Do you have in mind to buy a MacBook? Will you wait for the WWDC to pass or not?

      Good Aitor,

      the 27 ″ iMac was updated in October with the new Retina model. I don't know which iMac model you want but it is possible that the processors will be updated soon.

      It will always depend on the user's need.

        Well, I'm thinking of the imac 27, the model before the retina, and configure it with 4gb of graphics. Surely I will be able to buy it in June, but of course, I don't want to buy it and have processors updated in July ...

          Now at WWDC and after it we will surely see the first rumors and other news about the iMac, I would wait if it is not a case of urgent need.

    Buenas tardes. I was thinking of buying a macbook air, but the same thing happens to me. Since they haven't released a new model for so long, I am afraid to buy it now and that it will come out after doing so. Do you know if any update of this model is planned? Thanks a lot.
    a greeting

    Hello, regardless of the criteria expressed by bloggers, I would like you to recommend me which laptop I should buy, a MacBook Air or a Pro and what screen size for home use where the use of multimedia, music, etc. would prevail. Thanks
