    dude...

    Try Apple.com.

    See Macworld?

    It's a huge event, man. Happens every year. They tend to introduce new products.

    The big industry-ish pow-wow: MacWorld San Francisco. It's when/ where Apple usually announces new products/ product updates, etc. Quite the big deal.

    Steve Jobs gives a presentation (the Keynote) and yeah, new laptops are rumored. :)

    Some links to threads that talk about potential new portables: linky and linky and linky.

    Yes, wait.

    Now we have the Mac Pro out of the way, I'm incredibly expectant of brand new or revised Mac portable at Macworld (though I'm not expecting any "touch" nonsense... we have the iPhone/iPt for that already)

    Ugh. Don't worry that's just head-in-the-clouds pipdreaming. A multi-billion dollar company has more sense than to release anything like that.

    Maybe a Macbook with Tablet like qualities, more akin to what Windows currently offers, but I don't think we'll see a strict "touch" Macbook. I think the touch technology is still too new, not precise enough, and not as mainstream to warrant a large screen portable. It has worked fantastic because it has been kept in very small electronics like a cell phone and an MP3 player. A portable which would be at the level of a Macbook MUST have some type of tactile feedback, people just need that responsive return to their actions, a click sound just won't cut it.
