Intel's "Santa Rosa" platform gets a "Penryn" refresh before "Montevina" arrives
Intel needs to call a plumber, because future roadmap details continue to leak from the company. Yesterday, we learned of new
45nm Xeon processors
based on Intel’s upcoming

Intel has four new
-based Core 2 Duo processors in the pipeline. Although Intel has not given the new processors model names, Intel reveals the clock speeds and cache configurations in the latest roadmap.
All four mobile Core 2 Duo processors make use of an 800MHz FSB, matching
-based models. Intel does not intend to move mobile processors to a 1066 MHz or
1333 MHz front-side
bus like its desktop counterparts.

The four new mobile Core 2 Duo processors range from 2.1 GHz to 2.6 GHz. Higher-end 2.6 GHz and 2.5 GHz
-based mobile Core 2 Duo processors feature 6MB of L2 cache. The entry-level 2.4 GHz and 2.1 GHz have 3MB of L2 cache, half of the higher-end models. Intel plans to provide

Additionally, Intel plans a
refresh of its mobile Core 2 Extreme processor. The
mobile Core 2 Extreme processor
clocks in at 2.8 GHz on an 800 MHz front-side bus. Cache-size remains the same as the other

I understand what you're saying, but I see it as more of a product development pipeline. For example, now that the first round of Santa Rosa laptops is just being released, Intel engineers are working on the next revision of that platform. This gives plenty of time (at least a year) to sell the existing generation and to pay for the investments. Sales and marketing continues with the first-gen while engineering starts thinking about second-gen.
Of course, reading a site like DT we can always see the next wave coming, and we may have the desire to wait for the next wave. But most buyers are not aware of the next wave, and even if they were, they wouldn't be inclined to wait, since they may need a new machine "now" and not a year from now.
Also there is the potential problem of always waiting for the next thing, and therefore, never buying, since there is always something better on the horizon. Most people recognize you can't always wait, you have to plunk down money for today's tech sometimes.
Have a great day!
