    cmon the 1000 threads asking this;
    Should I wait after WWDC?
    Should I wait for Steve to come back?
    Should I wait until the new iPhone is released?
    Is the an update coming out?

    My recommendation would be to wait.

    Good reply, mate.

    To the OP:
    Use MRoogle.

    You could also look at the Buyer's Guide at the top of this page for guidance, but there are no updates expected at WWDC in June, maybe in August we will get a speed bump for the Back to School program.

    The next major CPU architectural update is expected in November, when mobile Quad Core CPUs are to be released by Intel that meet Apple's requirements.

    You can check the Buyer's Guide on this site, but it is just an educated guess based on statistical analysis.

    The rule of thumb is buy when you need to... there will always be updates coming

    Good luck with your purchase

    With WWDC happening in just over 2 weeks time, if you can wait that long, I am.
    After that, just buy, there's no telling when the next one could be out, if they don't do it soon, there wont really be time for another one till the next gen processors come out early next year.

    Definitely wait. If there is going to be an Apple keynote within 2 months of you needing to purchase, unless you are desperate always better to wait.

    We're rumoured to be seeing the Alu MacBook rebranded the 13" MacBook Pro, which will most likely incorporate dedicated graphics, FW800 and a better quality screen.
