I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really keep up on Mac product releases and cycles (or Mac rumors) — and I’m betting there are a few FGsters like me. Thus, why I think the MacRumors Buyer’s Guide is pretty bookmark-worthy. The guide maps the days since update for each model and provides a recommendation (double-plus good).
With the exception of “Don’t Buy – Updates Soon”, the remainder of recommendations are simply calculated based on the proximity of the most recent product release. The sooner from release, the stronger the “buy” recommendation that is made. When enough rumors accumulate regarding a particular product’s release or enough time has elapsed between updates, that product will receive a “Don’t Buy – Updates Soon” rating.
