Is Nehalem bringing something to Snow Leopard?

    I have an original black macbook.
    I love it of course but it is getting long in tooth and I have been doing much heavier Photoshop/InDesign work and I feel it is not up to the task anymore.

    I am going to buy either an iMac (because I also would need a new screen, this one is old too) or a Macbook Pro, I have one at work too so basically I could use my work laptop when I travel etc.

    Do you guys have an estimate when the Nehalem will trickle down to MBP's & iMacs?

    And will it be a significant upgrade to the existing core 2 considering all the advances in Snow Leopard?

    I can wait until SL but if there would not be _that_ much of a difference I'd like a new machine now.

    The Nehalem+Snow Leopard combo has been lauded for quite some time.

    We'll see what happens.

    The iMac and MacBook family will get Clarksfield in Q1 2010.

    Well, I think Snow-Leopard will fly on my 2.8 8 core MacPro.
