Also, does anybody know when would possibly a new generation of laptops arrive?
I need a laptop for university before the end of summer.
When would be the the best time to buy a laptop in this period of time.
Sorry for my english.

Early summer is the best time coming up (no later than week 1 or 2 of July), as channel clearance going into the 'back to school' shopping season is being geared up for.

A best deal without any real compromises to performance would be to look for a Haswell variant though, then just upgrade to an SSD if necessary (always a good idea to clean install the OS on these typically bloatware-laden laptops off the shelf at first use anyway).

DDR4 and Skylake in and of themselves are not a huge boost, but battery life is improved. If saving a few hundred dollars for a bit less battery life doesn't bother you though, then a 4720HQ based laptop would be a good way to go.

If you're looking to save money look for refrubs. You can get Haswell gen stuff for several hundred off the original price.

Is it possible that the prices will raise until July, because now I could get a laptop for a good price.

For Haswell based tech, probably not, but for Skylake it is a possibility. Just like going into black Friday, retailers often will raise prices by (slowly) going into a 'sale' season, to discount it.

If you can get what you want now for a good price, then may as well.

Thank you.
I think I'm going to buy this laptop: ASUS ROG GL552VW
6700HQ
8GB DDR4 2133MHz
1000 GB SATA 7200rpm
15.6" FULL HD
GTX 960M 4GB
For around 1050$
I wanted a 17" but I think I can live without that.
