Here’s an article that sums up the reasons to wait two months before you buy a notebook or netbook. It covers all the things I’ve been telling you recently:

WIndows 7 looks great. Plus, new laptops will have power-saving and performance features optimized for Windows 7.

Notebooks and netbooks will have new processors that are more powerful and better at extending battery life.

Laptops will be thinner and lighter. Some of them will be so thin that the MacBook Air will look clunky by comparison.

There will be sales. Retailers and manufacturers are hungry and will likely start marking things down quickly. Look for deals by “Black Friday,” a month after Windows 7 is released.

There are other new hardware goodies on the way. I’m particularly looking forward to fast, reliable, cheap solid-state drives.

Hang tight. Just another couple of months.
