Waiting for Santa Rosa or Intel Centrino Pro

I am thinking of buying a c2d with T7200 2ghz processor but am confused with all this santa rosa talk.

Should I wait for Santa Rosa what are its benefits and what will be its cost compared to the current core 2 duo technologies

With the flash hard drives robson technology and the draft n wireless be incorporated in consumer budget entertainment laptops like Dell E1505 or HP DV6000t at current price levels of < 1500$ or all these technologies be available for premium pricing i guess what i am asking what do you estimate will be price range for a santa rosa based notebook with the flash memory and n wireless etc. Also is the current technology not suitable for vista I am getting the impression that this technology is somewhat a compromise for vista ? Also to use the flash memory capability wouldnt the current computer models have to be redesigned ? Are these santa rosa technologies a must for a common user or more high end user who can pay more
