As per the terms and conditions of this community, we are prohibited from indulging in speculation.
Your guess is as good as ours.
My suggestion is that you buy a computer to fit your need whenever you can.

Hi, do you have an Apple Store nearby? Visit a few times and a Mac will follow you home
I love my MBA. If it helps at all I still use a G4 iBook running Panther. It does all the things it did when I first brought it home. I have Tiger disks but never got around to installing OS 10.4.
dominic23 gave good advice, buy what meets your needs when it suits you. Enjoy the new Mac!

As has been noted, speculation is prohibited by the TOS here. What we do know is that Apple announced last year that the OS would be updated on a yearly schedule. We also know that Apple refreshes its hardware on a semi-regular (or semi-irreguluar) schedule so no matter when we buy a new computer, within 6 months or so it is no longer the newest freshest Apple on the block.
It you are interested in switching to the Mac your first step should be to sit down and use different models - especially since you aren't sure what you want. Then once you have some idea(s) post questions here again.
