Macbook Pro 13-Inch (Mid-2012)

Is it worth purchasing it?

I have a budget for a little-bit over a thousand dollars due to selling a laptop which I used for gaming. But I have educational discount also which will bring it down to the "lowest" of 900 dollars.

The Specifications:

OS: Mac OS X 10.8 aka Mountain Lion

Storage: 500 GB Hard Drive (5400 RPM)


Processor: 2.5GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5

I have been reading some reviews from other websites which gets around 7-8 hours in daily use of using the Macbook Pro. But there is supposedly be a refresh for the Macbook Pro (rumored next month?) which will bring them with Haswell processors.

So the question is: should I wait until the refresh comes out for Haswell processor or purchase it soon?

I plan to purchase it in July/August.
