Default When is the best time to buy a laptop?

I want to buy an 2018 laptop because his sucessor isn't available in my country, some people advice me to wait until the end of the year to get a new model. I'm gonna use it for programming.
This is what I'm planning to buy :HP Envy 17
It is available for 960$.
So, should I wait or get this 2018 model now? (I'm not a gamer if this helps)

Completely incomprehensible, why would anyone want such an expensive and so bad computer?
Don't you know any better way to get rid of your money?

I do not give you any suggestions about what to buy or what not to buy. I just drew your attention to not pay so much for such a bad thing. But it is your concern if you really do not know what is good and what is bad, then buy. Once again, this is just a recommendation not to buy a crap (tomorrow You cannot do nothing with it), but everyone makes their own choice. If You really don't know what to do with Your money, buy this.
That's all I can tell you. The decision is yours, not mine.
