The new MacBook Pro is supposed to come out in a month or two. I'd live with the ancient Windows laptop for a few more months then get the upgraded one. Here's some more info: http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/. According to that guide, it's in the middle of it's lifecycle, but there are supposed to be some really cool upgrades in the new one. I'd wait.

My thoughts on whether or you need to purchase a MacBook Pro now or later is based on your current needs. Knowingly, there are always going to be better options, but right now is good enough to make your purchase. Even if it's a year down the line, your hardware will still be good even if it's not up to the standards at said time. I currently own a MacBook Pro from mid-2009 and it works fine. All I had to do was a couple of upgrades and bam, it still does what I need to do.

Hold on to the old laptop, the new Macbook Pro respins will be coming in March/April time and you will regret getting one now.

EDIT: ESPECIALLY since these new Macbooks are rumored to be coming with Intel's new Ivy Bridge processors.
