Planning out your MacBook upgrade to coincide with Intel’s chip releases should ensure that you are getting the largest performance gains with each purchase.

Most just want to know how long they would have to wait for the next release, and if it is not too far off, they will wait. Some Mac refreshes have significant performance improvements while others are just minor updates. But knowing whether or not the upcoming release will offer a major overall performance boost can help you decide.
