I have postponed selling of my mac mini untill now. (I'm sure im going to sell it now.) Anyway, I am wondering if I should wait for Leopard to come out before buying a mini, or if I should get a mini now.

If you're selling your computer, have no computer at the moment, and can wait, I would sit around until the Leopard release. If you can't wait, or need a Mac mini right now, get one and upgrade it to the specs you want, and get Leopard down the road.

I got my Mac mini for Christmas, and I have never looked back on waiting. I was glad I got one for Christmas, and didn't hesitate on when to purchase.

Same here. Except I got an iMac for Christmas.

If I was in the market to buy a new Mac, it's safe to say that I would wait for Leopard and iLife '07. I wouldn't want to give Apple another $200 in a few months to upgrade. I would rather put that $200 towards better components.

I would wait. You will have the newest and the greatest, without having to shell out for it later on. It is just a savings for being patient. Plus it should be out pretty soon. At least no later than WWDC, which is in June.

We'll probably see a final release of 10.5 & iLife '07 if it doesn't come out on the 20th Feb. And maybe new Mac Pros or MacBook Pros.

If you really need a Mac, just get one. It feels worse to wait, i was waiting for the new iMac to come out in MacWorld but it never happened so i given up on it.

I'm now most likely to get a MacBook Pro in the summer (once i get the money Laughing ), But i'm not going to wait for a updated one. I need a laptop for my A\AS levels and i'm not going to rely on my Windows laptop.
