This is one of the "side-effects" of Apple's switch to the Intel platform -- at least two updates of their line annually -- depending on how fast Intel can churn out newer and faster processor.

This may be a bit frustrating to Apple users since their machines gets obsolete faster but a godsend to others since it can only mean less expensive Apple hardware in the market.
