bebs2002,

I know that we showcased the prototypes for the 2009 models at iCES this year. However, I don't know when manufacturing starts for those models. I might guess that you'd see them begin to appear around the first half of the year, but I have no way of announcing that outside of our official press releases.

As far as prices go, the new models will start likely at a premium price whereas the prices on our current lineup have dropped some.

The decision is yours, but I just don't have any inside information that can directly answer your question.
