    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    If you need a computer now, the 15-inch MacBook Pro is perfect for your uses: it's fast, it has got two graphic cards (one for normal use and another one for heavy applications and games), it's not so heavy...

    That's a risk, but you can be sure that it doesn't mind the MacBook generation you buy. Just think: if you need a computer now, buy the MacBook Pro, and if you can wait, wait until a new MacBook Pro, but we don't know when it will be released, and maybe you will have to wait a lot
