I was wondering what everyone's opinions are as to whether now is a good time to buy a laptop or not. i look to buy one about every 2 years, focusing on gaming/desktop replacement ability rather than portability. right now id probably go for a high-ish end acer, probably 2.0ghz core 2 duo, 2gb ram, vista, 256 graphics, 15.4" widescreen.
However, ive seen that a number of new processors have just or are about to be released (im thinking specifically of the Santa Rosa/Centrino Pro line). What are your thoughts as to whether i should buy now or hold off a little?
