If battery life is not important than Haswell really wont be a big deal for you. However.. if you don't need anything right away may as well just wait.. you get a computer at the start of a chip cycle.. all the new parts that will come with it should last a while. I read somewhere that Haswell prices should come down end of 13, beginning 14
