New Macs are coming out? I know iPads are, just didn't know about Macs. Is it a new iMac, MBP, MBA, etc?

I'm still fighting with my thoughts. Buying this one with edu offer or waiting for the new shiny one next month.

Still no decent info about major improvements which would justify potential price increases (I'm from Europe).
