I need to buy a laptop by Spring... show now or wait?

I need to get a laptop (<=$500) for my inlaws, which are visiting us sometime in the Spring, probably around Easter. Do I go shopping tomorrow, or wait till March/April? I think it's better to wait, unless there is a spectacular deal tomorrow (I doubt). I am not going out, I will be shopping online at the most.

If you're not already in line, you won't be getting a spectacular deal tomorrow.

We picked up the $298 Compaq at WalMart a few weeks ago for our
niece and nephews, all in the same household. They don't have a
computer to do their homework and this one should do.

Wait. In the spring there will be new offers, new deal. $500 within mainstream pc price now and there will be more. Plus if its new there will be 3-4 months more left on the warranty.

Get a Wind netbook and put OS X on it.
