    There isn't anything on the apple website about it since its only a rumour. Check the macrumors website instead. Its very likely that the deal for an iPod with the mac will include the updated version.

    As for major changes, probably incorporation of multi-touch trackpad, faster processor, and a new look for the casing. The rumour is that it will be Aluminium w/ stainless steel like the current MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

    My apologies. I thought that you wanted more info on the promo.

    The Montevina MacBook/Pros shouldn't be out before July 14 based on the idea that the platform is delayed.

    Don't buy now. You won't get multi-touch, aluminum, or anything else that the Waiters complain about.

    If you don't care, buy now.

    WWDC is the Worldwide Developer Conference that Apple holds every year. It's big. Like... if you were an ant and WWDC was anything else, it would be the size of VY Canis Majoris.

    the apple store would have no information about a new revision, that would make absolutely no business sense. Then nobody would buy the current one.

    Apple has gotten their hands on Intel's technology faster than other manufacturers, however, in the past. I'm not so quick to dismiss updates (especially to the MBP, since what's "holding up" Montevina doesn't affect it in the slightest) before then, but I'm not completely ruling it out either. I think that a new MBP in June followed by a new MB in July is plausible (but could very well not happen as well).

    The deal doesn't end until september 15th. I would just wait until early september, if there hasn't been a revision then you might as well buy it and not feel bad that you missed out on a great deal.
