I'm seriously considering buying a MacBook Pro. This will be the first major hit on one of my credit cards. The only question is whether I buy it now, or wait until I'm in Japan to get it.

I should probably research Macs a bit and see if there are any technology jumps coming that I might want to wait for.

I want a laptop for Japan. It would be easier to buy it here, but only for a Mac. A PC would be tons cheaper in Japan, but I'd have to make sure I bring any software I'd need (another good reason to buy here is that I can set it all up and keep whatever I want from my PC here.) A Mac, though very easily found in Japan, is priced about the same here and Japan. The PC in Japan would also be much cheaper than a Mac anywhere.

Dang money coming into this crap.
